Notice: Under current Federal Law it is not legal to ship snails across state borders without a special federal permit for each state. The cost of the permits is so high that it precludes shipping snails. So we do not ship snails at this time. We apologize for any disappointment this causes.

Appropriate Home
These Snails all do well in fish bowls, in ponds, in warm water aquariums, and in cool water aquariums with a water temperature between 65 and 82 degrees F.
But these Snails cannot be kept in cold water below 65 degrees for extended periods. They will die in a few days at a temperature of 50 degrees F. So they cannot stay outside in ponds in areas with temperatures below 65 degrees F.
All these Snails can tolerate some aquarium salt dissolved in the water. In fact they can tolerate more than the 1 Tablespoon of Aquarium Salt per 5 gallons of water that is often recommended as a treatment for fish.
So you do not need to remove the Snails when you add this amount of salt to your water. But be sure the Snails do not come into contact with the solid particles of salt. A good way to add salt to an aquarium is to put the salt in a net and hold the net in the water until the salt dissolves.
These Snails may be sensitive to the Quick Cure, and so we recommend that you gently move your Snails to another container filled with safe water before you treat your aquarium with Quick Cure. Click here to read more about using Aquarium Salt and Quick Cure.

Black Mystery Snail for the aquariums.   Here is another picture from Wally Billingham of a Black Mystery Snail.

Recommended Diet
These Snails will eat many kinds of food. They seem to do very well on a diet of flake food, eating the tiny bits that settle to the bottom and are usually not eaten by the fish. In this way Snails usually improve the quality of the water. But they are not a substitute for regular maintenance. Click here to read more about regular maintenance.
These Snails will also eat living plants such as the ones we sell. Click here to see the list of plants we sell. The amount of damage they will do to live plants varies with each type of plant and each type of snail. The Gold Mystery Snail seems to eat more of most plants than the other snail species.

Columbian Rams Horn Aquarium Snail.   Here is a third picture from Wally Billingham, who says, "This is Edgar ... a Giant Columbian Ram's Horn Snail." Edgar does look quite a bit like the Columbian Ram's Horn Snails that we sell.

These Snails are compatible with most fish except some huge fish that may be able to crush the snail's shell. Puffers, Clown Loaches, and Yoyo Loaches love to eat Snails, but the Snails shown on this page are usually too big for most fish to eat.


Size and Lifespan
These Snails will live about 12 to 16 months when kept in water at a temperature of 82 degrees F. At a temperature of 65 degrees F. Snails have a lifespan of at least 3 years perhaps as long as 10 years. Generally, the cooler the water the longer the Snails will live. But these Snails do not live well at a temperature below about 65 degrees F.

 About our Fish ...
Almost all the photographs and videos, shown on this web site, were taken by us of our fish in our aquariums.
Compare the healthy, beautiful, energetic fish in our beautiful aquariums to the fish in our competitors pictures. Their fish often look thin with clamped fins and poor color.
We buy the highest quality fish, produced by the best fish farms or caught by the best collectors of wild fish, then we take incredibly good care of our fish in our beautiful aquariums.
If you compare the pictures on this site to our competitors pictures, you can instantly see, our fish and aquariums are better!  ;^ }
Will the fish you get from us look like the fish in our pictures? No! This is similar to buying kittens and puppies that will change as they grow to become cats and dogs.
We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to sell. Not so small that they will not do well when shipped. Yet not so big that they have become much more expensive.
The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the ones we have for sale that we raised up, and you can too!
