Ivory Mystery Snail

Product Description
Ivory mystery snails are yet another great addition to the many mystery snails we carry. They have a nice sold egg shell color them. 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.

Shipping problems/ swift resolution

I ordered my snails during the Holiday shipping season (what was I thinking), so there was delay in the shipping and it seems the parcel was stored someplace very cold (like outside in a truck). The snails were super cold when I got them and smelled like death. I contacted Flip Aquatics to let them know what happened and they were super quick to jump on board with replacing them. We corresponded and decided to wait until after the holidays for the replacements to be shipped, and they are beautiful!!! Flip Aquatics is a wonderful company to do business with, and I mean that on all the levels possible! I look forward to doing business with them again!
