    If you cleaned all the jumk out it will be fine to put back in.I left a few in for quite some time in the past with no issues.My dwarf corys used it for a play hut.

    So how long do gold mystery snails live? I just bought one yesterday. I'm really excited. I've had fish for a while now but never a snail. Her name is Eppie.
    40g breeder reef- Two clowns named Cora and Bennie, King the Midas Blenny, Dante the cleaner shrimp, Athena the peppermint shrimp, and a plethora of sps, lps, and softies.

    90g fw community- Two Blood parrots named Glub Glub and Dert Da Der, Rex the 7yr old common pleco, and a mish mash of other community fish.

    The empty shell won't do any harm, I found a number of "ghost" spixi's when I cleaned out the breeders for auction a few months ago. Considering the way snails eat shrimp or crayfish carcasses, I'm somewhat surprised they don't recycle the empty snail shells too. I guess they're too thick and hard to bother with.
