  • Prince's great climb!

    At lights on this morning my purple mystery snail Prince was just reaching the top of the big tree in my 55g. Sorry about the flash in the second one but you can see him way at the top! We're talking like 12-13" off the ground, quite a climb. I also thought it was funny because the fish are very active around there so he'd take a peek, crawl a little, pull his helmet down and eat for a awhile and repeat while fish were bouncing off his shell.




    As an added bonus I've included a shot of a gravid female Gald Barb from the rear in the 2nd picture!

      Yeah he/she is! I just call him a he.

      Thanks, with a tank full of corries it doesn't ever amount to anything but a cool behavior to watch anyways.

              Thanks guys. I've only been a mystery snail owner for a couple weeks so we're still in our honeymoon phase where I'm constantly attentive to them and snapping pictures.

              Nope, I don't have any indoor lilly pads.

                I only asked because over on FL another member mentioned her snail was named price and he ventured all the way up onto a lily pad! Your snails could be related! XD

                  They could! They both had a dream to climb something tall in the tank.

                      Haha! That's how my Mystery snail Bonehead got his name! He climbed up the tallest "mountain" in the tank, crawled out onto a branch and just kept going until the bulk of his shell/body fell of the edge and he was hanging on by the tip of his foot!

                        Nice pictures, the pictures are making me want to try mystery snails now.

                          Before them I'd only had MTS and Nerites, these guys are so much more active, faster and all around more interesting imo.

                            To me MTS are about as interesting as watching a microwave cook my food lol, but they serve a good purpose. After seeing the video of the snail riding bubbles and your pictures of the alien looking face I started thinking. Plus, that purple shell is pretty cool looking.

                              Your right! The fact the mts clean up poop to me is great but not very interesting.

                              The face on the mysteries is really cool! I don't know what they see but it actually looks like they're looking at you, I would assume probably just a shape. They're shells are pretty neat too, even the chestnut's shell has different hues and is very interesting, almost like an old piece of furniture has that polish and coloring.
