We cannot determine the sex of the snails before shipping. 

Blue Mystery Snails tend to get more yellow on the shell as they age. The blue tint comes from the dark foot showing through a clear shell. As the shell ages, it thickens, and becomes more opaque. Still - pretty but different as they age.

We are not advertising these as having 'perfect' shells. Some will show some small imperfection like a slight crack or some pitting around the spiral. The older they get, the obvious these imperfections can become.  Small ones tend to have nothing too obvious.

What to Expect - Pomacea diffusa (formally P. bridgesii), these beautiful snails are an apple snail that comes in several color varieties. We will be adding more color varieties in the future. The only plant we've seen them eat is duckweed - which they love. A really big one will grow to about 2.25" in diameter. They lay their eggs in a cluster just above the waterline, so it's easy to control them. Just remove the clusters or keep the water to the top of the tank. Dark Striped Purple (DSP) has a dark foot with purple shell and purple stripes. The Light Striped Purple (LSP) has a light foot with a purple shell and purple stripes. The foot color affects the way the shell base color appears and the shade of the purple. There is a fair amount of variation among adults. The ivory apple snail has a light foot in a clear shell. Keep in mind that shell color changes as they grow. As it grows, the shell becomes thicker and less translucent. The pigments often deepen and change in hue. Large adults tend to have less bright colors (though not always) and shells with more imperfections.

 Diet - They will eat almost anything, but in our experience they must have quite a bit of protein. Many people feed them mostly vegetables and they will not grow as well without higher protein levels. We feed them a lot of Vegetable Discs, Weekender Pellets, and Primal Pellets.   

This time-lapse video shows them eating a few Vegetable Discs that were put in a tank of snails (along with some bristlenose). 

Imagine if you could be satisfied and content with your purchase. That can very much be your reality with the Snail - Blue Mystery.

Great snails!

This is my fourth order with Angels Plus and I am always happy. So worth the buy over the pet stores, prices are comparable but the color verity is top notch. Packaging is done right also, my mailman tossed theses poor guys up my driveway and everyone did great.

Our blue mystery snail Turbo and light striped purple mystery snail Gary, arrived very healthy and were moving around as soon as I opened the box. They cruise around the tank eating algae and every so often algae wafers. Turbo recently took a 3 day nap and since then makes bubbles when our betta pokes his shell. The betta doesn't bother Gary since he's 2-3 times the size of Turbo. Other than that they all get along great :D

Love these little snails!

I ordered 6 snails and I received 7! Thank you so much! I ordered 2 blue, 2 ivory and 2 purple (bonus extra purple!). Took them no time (after acclimating them) to start exploring their new home. I can sit for hours watching them. Unfortunately, 1 ivory and 1 purple passed away :( , I’m not sure why. Tank parameters are perfect (has been established for months). However, I will be ordering more! The packaging they were in was perfect! Thank you Angels Plus! Look for another order from me very soon!

I got one blue snail and one light purple snail for my betta tank. I got the package which was very well packed and they had given me an extra light purple snail! I have lots of room in my tank since it’s just my betta in a 10 gallon so I was very pleased albeit slightly confused. All three snails were out and about as soon as I put the bag in the water to acclimate. Two weeks later they are all doing wonderfully! I’m so glad I ordered from here and I will definitely be ordering from this site in the future!
