whats the difference between mystery snails at petsmart/petco and other named snails from the LFS?

are mystery snails just that.. mystery? so you dont know what variety you are getting?

what do they do for the tank, just help with algae?

I bought two blue snails from them about a year ago, I have dozens now and they do a great job multiplying as needed and keeping the tanks clean.

Like someone said earlier, check for tips on keeping them. I know for me low PH was a re-occurring problem. If you have a pregnant female and not enough space above the water, they can get egg bound and die, it goes on.. as easy as these guys can be to keep, you still need the proper conditions for them.
