Ok so I looked up green mystery snails and a few websites have jade or olive mystery snails, but a couple pictures on the internet showed actual green mystery snails! Are these actually a thing? Or are the internet picture fake/super rare? If so, where could I buy them?

I actually looked up the same thing and found that same picture not long ago! For that particular picture, I honestly feel like it's fake. It looks like it's probably an ivory or even a blue snail in some weird green lighting. I think the closest to a full green color you can get is with the olive jade color variants, or I'm sure there are some blue ones that may appear to be more of a greenish blue color. I'm no mystery snail expert though so I can't be 100% sure.

I have no idea whether such an animal exists. I mean, why would an aquatic snail get sea sick?

Seriously though, that photo is VERY edited. Either the light source was green, the water was green, or someone put a green tint over the photo after they took the picture.
Really don't know anything about snails though, so it might be a real thing, though that photo NOT it!

Mabey if you get an Ivory mystery snail and let algae grow on it. But that definitely looks like the lighting is just green.

Maybe go full Glofish and just paint him with phosphorus or something...
