These Purple Mystery Snails (Pomacea Bridgesii) are not only beautiful but they are great algae eaters. They are relatively difficult to source for compared to the rest of the mystery snails. They eat algae off of aquarium walls, plants and substrate. These snails are also peaceful creatures will not bother other tank inhabitants. We sell our snails at around 1 inch to 1.5" in diameter, but they can grow up to 3 inches in diameter.
The difference between Magenta Mystery Snails and the Purple Mystery Snails is that Magenta Mystery Snails have white flesh which results in a lighter coloration while the Purple Mystery Snails have black flesh which results in a darker coloration. The color of their shells are technically the same.
These snails have pretty big appetites and grow in size fairly quickly. We feed a combination of our own foods Shrimpy Party, protein party, blanched vegetables (Spinach and Zucchini) and Mulberry leaves.
