Pomacea bridgesii, common names the spike-topped apple snail or mystery snail, is a South American species of freshwater snail with gills and an operculum, an aquatic gastropod mollusk in the family Ampullariidae 

These large and striking snails are great for adding color to your aquarium, and duel for having usefulness in other ways while in your tank(s). Gold Apple Snail knows for clean algae off of glass, plants, and decorations; they eat hair algae; and they keep your substrate clean and the correct color. Gold Mystery snail are tranquil and are completely safe with any fish, shrimp, or plants. Gold Apple Snail they can get pretty large once they are adults measuring to upwards of three (3) inches in diameter. Mystery Snails' shells are vibrant and a lively golden yellow color.  Their bodies are pearly white with iridescent markings which can be mesmerizing when they catch light.


Mystery Snails are generally more active and exhibit a more playful behavior than other types of freshwater snails. They are almost always scaling the walls of the aquarium and extending their antennae in search of food. They will climb up to the water line to breathe air, so it's a good idea to ensure the water line in your aquarium isn't too high. When a Mystery Snail reaches the top of a wall or structure, it will often let go of the wall and glide rapidly downward until it crashes into plants below.


Gold Apple Snail have ravenous appetites and grow in size rapidly if they are fed well; a young Mystery Snail can double in size in a matter of weeks to months.  As with all freshwater snails, Mystery Snails are very sensitive to copper (please be intentional with monitoring your copper levels if you use tap water in your tank).

Awesome Snails!

These snails were packaged very carefully and arrived here in the exact time Splashy Fish said that they would! All of them are alive and happy, and a couple are SO MUCH bigger than I thought!! Perfect for my betta tank.

Great mystery snails

Ordered 3 gold mystery snails with a betta. Well packaged and insulated. Each snail was wrapped in its own wet paper towels and in an oxygenated pouch. Usually I get them all together in a bag so better packaging than most sellers. All around nickel sized.

1 is already out eating snail food and the other 2 are slowly coming out. Sometimes they take longer but I can tell they’re all alive. Very happy and will be ordering again in the future.
