Mystery Snail Question

I have 4 golden mystery snails...2 in each tank. I know very little about them, other than they have become quite active of late. They seem to expand to a very large snail...and it even looks like the shells expand. Is this what happens? At first they did nothing but sit there, but now they are all over..sticking here and there. Very fun to watch, but I'd like to know more about their anatomy if anyone is familiar. Thanks.

They don't call them mystery snails for nothing! One of mine crawled up in his shell for a week and I was just about to pull him out that day thinking surely he died and I came home to him going across the glass. Some people don't like the snails but I think they are fun to watch and add some variety and color to the tank.

Mysterious Snails

They are still multiplying rapidly, but don't seem to be getting any larger than 1/2 inch. I don't think they are mystery snails. Would assassin snails take care of the problem?

Yes assassins will do good work
