    Are you sure they are dead? They can hibernate for long periods at a time, especially if they are well fed.

    Check out this huge gold mystery snail of mine. He is almost a record setter.
    The one next to him is a normal size mystery snail. The big one is 1" wide or a little more. Quite happy with him. He is housed in my 5.5 gallon tank with a male betta 2 golden clams and 3 other snails, (adding some exotic shrimp soon shrimp soon). I just recently planted bulbs in that tank too.

    rainbowfish your big snail looks like a golden apple snail and that would explain why so big

    apple snails and mystery snails are the same thing, just different names. Also it seems as though you thought i was trying to figure out why so big... not the case...
