    I just found this message and couldn't remember if I had answered you. Ignore if I did. All mystery snails will float. They go into a sort of hibernation for no known reason. They close up and do not move for days at a time. Then they come around and start acting normal again. They do it more often as they get older. People have thrown them away thinking they were dead only to find them crawling around in the trash. If all water test are fine than they are just being snails. You will know if they are dead when they hang outside of their shell and do not try to close up when touched. They also smell really bad but snails do not smell nice even when alive. LOL

    Hello Wildrose,
    I was wondering if you would have any idea why first one, and now my other Mystery Snails started floating? First my Golden one did for a few days and now tonight my Blue one also started. I can't imagine what would cause this. Do you have an insight?

    Hi Wildrose,
    I have been posting about Assassin Snails. Do you think my Mystery Snails are safe since they'll have an ample food source of pond snails and MTS, or should I play it safe and put my Mystery Snails in the betta tank while they do their work?

    Hey rose-since you seem to be the resident snail expert on here, I have a question about pond snails. I have some MTS which I never see. But I'm constantly getting rid of pond snails (which obviously came in on some plants at some point). I won't see any for a day or so and then there will be a couple of large ones and maybe 6 babies. I don't overfeed, and I was hoping that between the coreys, pleco and 2 mystery snails, they wouldn't get enough food to continue to propagate, but they are. Am I right to be concerned that if I leave them unchecked, they'll get too be too many for my tank? I also have noticed holes in my plants which I never saw before, so I'm guessing they're eating my plants, but I could be wrong.
