I used to have tons of mystery snails before I switched over to saltwater. I had many different colors. Gold, blue, purple, blackish, striped. I also had some real apple snails. They are so cool.

My snail was busy being at the back corner of my tank, so I had to get pictures off the Internet...

The first one is a pond snail..... The shell is shaped more like an oval or kind of like "shell macaroni".... ()

The second picture is a mystery snail..... It's a bigger sized snail with more round features. O

Pond snails are the ones who reproduce like crazy

Mystery snails don't reproduce crazy fast, but sometimes will make bubble nests...

Mystery snails lay eggs out of the water so you can just scrape them off

Cool! I have 2 of those growing in my 10g. The pond snails however are somewhat of a nuisance
