Gold Mystery Snail

Product Description

Gold mystery snails are a personal favorite here at Flip Aquatics. The color of the shell and snail stands out in an aquarium and is somewhat a nice yellow color. Mystery snails have become a huge part of Flip Aquatics due to their many benefits for breeding and keeping shrimp. The following reasons are why we have found these snails to be a crucial part of our shrimp tanks:

Cycling

We use these beautiful snails to help keep our aquarium cycled as we add and take shrimp out of the tank to sell. They produce a fair amount of waste which helps keep beneficial bacteria. This bacteria is crucial for processing waste out of the water (also known as the nitrogen cycle).

Clean Up

One of the leading causes for beginner shrimp keepers to fail is overfeeding. Many hobbyists are use to feeding a lot of doing huge water changes. For shrimp, this is not the case. A smaller water change of 10% biweekly is more than enough for shrimp to thrive. Therefore, when the occasional overfeeding happens it can lead to raised ammonia level and in turn, dead shrimp.

Mystery snails have a large appetite and will gladly clean up any leftover food in an aquarium. They can actually breakdown food much quicker than shrimp through digestion. This is why we believe that snail poop is actually beneficial to a shrimp’s diet. Therefore, these shrimp are providing clean up and eventually natural food.

Entertaining

I got 3 of these to keep in my shrimp tank and have to tell you the kids love watching them as much as the shrimp. Very healthy and were out and about in the tank as soon as I went thru the acclimation process.
