This less common mystery snail boasts a gold shell with a black body, resulting in a greenish-gold overall appearance!

These large and striking snails are great for adding some color to your aquarium, but they also serve some very useful purposes.  They clean algae off of glass, plants, and decorations, they eat hair algae, and they keep your substrate clean and the correct color.  They are totally safe with any fish, shrimp, or plants, and are completely peaceful.  These snails are quite large as adults, growing up to 3 inches in diameter! 
All Olive Jade Mystery Snails' shells feature stunning gold coloration.  Their bodies are reminiscent of black opals, as they are a very dark, almost black color with iridescent markings that are truly breathtaking when they catch the light. These shell and body colors result in an overall olive green coloration
Mystery Snails are generally much more active and display more playful behavior than other types of freshwater snails.  They are almost constantly scaling the walls of the aquarium, extending their antennae in search of food.  They will climb up to the water line in to breathe air, so it's a good idea to make sure the water line in your aquarium isn't too high.  When a Mystery Snail reaches the top of a wall or structure, it will often let go of the wall and glide rapidly downward until it crashes into plants or into the substrate below, often eliciting a "Weeee!" sound from any witnesses.
We try to ship mostly young Mystery Snails to customers so that they can be kept and enjoyed for more of their lifespan; thus, most of our Mystery Snails will arrive at a smaller size (around .25 - 1.5 inches (1.3 - 5 cm) in diameter).  They have voracious appetites and grow in size VERY quickly if they are fed well; a young Mystery Snail can double in size in a matter of weeks to months.  As with all freshwater snails, Mystery Snails are very sensitive to copper, so it's advisable to monitor your copper levels if you use tap water in your tank.
NOTE:  If you search the Internet for Mystery Snails, many results will state that these are the same species as Apple Snails.  These are NOT Apple Snails, though they do resemble them in shape and belong to the same family.  Apple Snails are considered an invasive species and are illegal to own in the United States.  Our Mystery Snails do not grow to the tremendous size that Apple Snails do (often as big as an apple).

      This colorful tetra is a true aquarium hobby classic!

      These little tetras are one of the more beautifully colored fish available in the freshwater aquarium hobby!  They have a silver body and feature a shimmering red/pink stripe throughout the middle of their body.  Their eye-catching coloration has made them one of the most popular fish for freshwater aquariums today.  They are great for beginners and experts alike, and they thrive in any well-established aquarium that meets their recommended water parameters.  These fish stay small, growing no larger than one to two inches, which makes them an excellent choice for small-sized tanks!

      Glowlight Tetras are very peaceful and make great additions to community aquariums.  However, they should only be kept in tanks with other non-aggressive fish that are similar in size.  They are a schooling fish, and their schools create a magnificent display of colors in motion that has to be seen to be believed!  These fish do best in densely planted aquariums with plenty of hiding places.  This can be achieved with rocks and caves, driftwood, and live plants (good ones include mosses or tall plants that will reach the middle level of the aquarium, such as green cabomba, moneywort, java ferns, etc.).  Since they are a schooling fish, they can really only thrive in groups, which is why we sell them in groups of 6 and 12.

      Glowlight Tetras spend most of their time within the middle and top levels of the aquarium.  These fish are not recommended for new tanks, as they may have problems in tanks that are not well-cycled.  It is important to acclimate Glowlight Tetras to a new tank slowly, because they can be sensitive to changes in water parameters.  They are known to be difficult to breed in captivity; the water conditions must be perfect for them to spawn.  Interestingly, the bright colors on these fish tend to become dimmer at night.  This is normal and does not indicate sickness or weakness in the tetras.

      Iridescent red stripe that add bright bursts of color to any aquarium set-up

      Its small size makes it an ideal candidate for the nano aquarium

      Shipping Schedule for this service

      UPS 1 Day: Monday through Thursday

      Current Handling Time:

      1-9 business days

      Here at Aquatic Arts, we consider the welfare of the live animals we are shipping to be of the foremost importance. This process is much more involved than simply creating a shipping label and affixing it to a box. Depending on the order, it takes from 4 to 7 people to complete this process properly. We check the weather conditions here where they fly out of the Indianapolis UPS facility and the destination for each shipment. We start early each morning and go through a multi-step process to have the day's shipments prepared in time for the UPS pickup. The volume of orders in our system also affects the processing time. Therefore our stated handling time is 1-9 business days. 

      Shipping Rate

      Pricing is by size of package needed to fill entire order and distance it must travel. It will be calculated at checkout.



      Q: What are the ideal tank mates for Glowlight Tetras?
      A: Glowlight Tetras do best with other small, peaceful fish. Ideal tank mates include Neon Tetras, Harlequin Rasboras, Corydoras Catfish, and small livebearers like Guppies or Mollies.

      Q: How often should I feed Glowlight Tetras?
      A: Glowlight Tetras should be fed 1-2 times a day. Provide only as much food as they can consume in 2-3 minutes to avoid overfeeding and water quality issues.

      Q: What should I do if my Glowlight Tetras are not schooling?
      A: Ensure you have at least 6-12 Glowlight Tetras, as they are schooling fish and feel more secure in larger groups. Also, check if there are any stressors in the tank such as aggressive tank mates or poor water quality.

      Q: Can Glowlight Tetras live with shrimps and snails?
      A: Yes, Glowlight Tetras are generally safe with non-aggressive invertebrates like shrimps and snails. They add a nice dynamic to the aquarium and help with cleaning.

      Q: How can I tell the difference between male and female Glowlight Tetras?
      A: Males are usually slimmer and may have more intense coloring, especially during breeding times. Females tend to be rounder and slightly larger, particularly when carrying eggs.

      Q: What signs of illness should I watch for in Glowlight Tetras?
      A: Watch for changes in color, fin rot, spots, or unusual swimming behavior. Common illnesses include ich, fin rot, and swim bladder issues. Quarantine affected fish and treat the tank if necessary.

      Q: What lighting conditions do Glowlight Tetras prefer?
      A: Glowlight Tetras thrive in subdued lighting conditions, which mimic their natural habitat. Moderate lighting with plenty of plants for shade creates an ideal environment for them.
