Tank Size:

  • Keep Ivory Mystery Snails in a well-established aquarium of at least 10 gallons.
  • Ensure the tank has a secure lid, as Mystery Snails are known to explore and may attempt to escape.

Water Parameters:

  • Temperature: Maintain a water temperature between 68-82°F (20-28°C).
  • pH: Keep the pH level in the slightly acidic to neutral range, ideally between 7.0-7.5.
  • Hardness: Provide moderately hard to hard water, with a hardness range of 10-20 dGH.

Filtration:

  • Use a gentle aquarium filter to ensure clean and well-oxygenated water.
  • Mystery Snails are sensitive to ammonia and nitrite, so maintaining good water quality is crucial.

Substrate and Decor:

  • Use smooth gravel or sand as substrate to prevent damage to the snail’s delicate foot.
  • Include decorations, rocks, and plants to create hiding spots and surfaces for climbing.

Diet:

  • Ivory Mystery Snails are primarily herbivores. Provide a balanced diet that includes high-quality sinking pellets and vegetables such as lettuce, spinach, and zucchini.
  • Avoid overfeeding to prevent water quality issues.

Compatibility:

  • Ivory Mystery Snails are generally peaceful and can be kept with a variety of community fish.
  • Avoid housing them with aggressive or nippy tankmates.

Water Changes:

  • Perform regular water changes of about 10-20% weekly to maintain water quality.
