I am an aquarium hobbyist who enjoys keeping various aquatic snails including mystery snails (Pomacea diffusa), rabbit snails (Tylomelania), and ramshorn snails.

Wild or Dark foot gold striped Mystery Snails?

Most people will call these wild mystery snails and I probably will too when they breed and have babies to sell…but I’m rather fascinated with genetics and think these may actually be dark foot gold striped. I’ll try to cross some of them to gold or ivory when old enough to see what I get. Striping is dominant so it will just depend on what these snails carry as to what type of babies I see in the first generation. They are beautiful and some show a mottled body patterned and most show these pretty orange spots on the face. They are about dime size now so I have at least a few months to wait until they start breeding for me. We shall see 😀

Baby Purple Mystery Snails

It’s been awhile since I have actively tried to raise any mystery snails  due to space and time constraints. However, I have had 3 egg clutches hatch starting on Valentine’s Day 2/14/20. The babies are ivory, blue, magenta and dark foot purple. Below is one of the mother snails. Keep an eye out and I will post on my available page when they are ready to go to new homes.
