Why choose Black Mystery Snail - Pomacea bridgesii?



Black Mystery Snail - Pomacea bridgesii is a beautiful freshwater snail that adds a lot of character to any aquarium. These snails get their name because of their black shell with a striped pattern that looks very mysterious. The snails have an ability to stay underwater for long periods, and they can climb to the top of the aquarium to breathe air, resulting in a free fall from the top of the tank! It's commonly believed they do this for fun.

One of the reasons why Black Mystery Snail - Pomacea bridgesii is a popular choice among aquarium enthusiasts is their ability to keep the tank clean. These snails are natural algae eaters and will help to keep the tank algae-free. They also eat leftover fish food and any decaying plant matter, helping to prevent the buildup of harmful bacteria and maintain a healthy environment for your fish and plants! 

At Great Wave Aquatics, we take pride in providing healthy and vibrant Black Mystery Snails to our customers. We only source the highest quality, healthy snails and are here for any questions about acclimation to your aquarium!
