Mystery Snail Purple (small)

Description

The mystery snail, also known as the apple snail, is a popular freshwater aquarium snail. The purple mystery snail is a colorful variant of this species and is often sought after for its striking appearance. Here are the key details for keeping a small purple mystery snail in an aquarium:

  1. Temperature: Mystery snails thrive in a relatively moderate temperature range. The ideal temperature for these snails is between 68 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit (20 to 28 degrees Celsius). It's crucial to maintain a stable temperature within this range to ensure the well-being and health of your snail.

  2. Minimum Tank Size: For a single small purple mystery snail, a minimum tank size of 5 gallons is recommended. However, it's important to note that the tank size should increase if you plan to keep multiple snails or have other tank inhabitants. Providing ample space is essential for their comfort and well-being.

Tank Conditions and Care:

  • Water Quality: Ensure that the water quality is optimal and well-maintained. Regular water changes, typically about 10-25% of the tank volume weekly, can help maintain good water quality.
  • Substrate: A smooth and soft substrate is preferred to prevent any potential damage to their delicate bodies.
  • Diet: Mystery snails are generally considered to be scavengers and will eat various types of organic matter, such as algae, decaying plant matter, and even fish food. However, it's recommended to supplement their diet with algae wafers or blanched vegetables like zucchini or spinach.
  • Tank Mates: These snails are generally peaceful and can coexist with many fish species, but it's important to avoid aggressive or overly curious tank mates that might harm them.
  • Calcium Source: Providing a calcium source, such as a cuttlebone or crushed coral, is important for their shell development and overall health.

It's important to remember that these snails are sensitive to water parameters, so regular monitoring of the water quality is crucial. With the appropriate care and tank conditions, a small purple mystery snail can make an attractive and low-maintenance addition to your freshwater aquarium.
