Description

Nerite Snail are an extremely docile creature and does not bother any other inhabitants. They clean algae off of glass, plants, and decorations, they eat hair algae, and they keep your substrate clean and the correct color.

Nerite Snails are widely believed to be the single best snail in the aquarium hobby for eating algae. They are totally safe with any fish, shrimp, or plants, and are completely peaceful. Nerite Snails require salt water to reproduce, so they will never overpopulate your aquarium (as some freshwater snails are known to do). They are also peaceful and safe with live plants, fish, and shrimp, making them great for community tanks.

These Nerite Snails reach around 1-1.2cm. They do not eat plants (only algae), so they are perfectly suitable for planted tanks. Please note that products like No-Planaria will kill your Snails.

*Note: Our parameters are listed here for your reference only. You do not need to adjust your water to exactly the same; we find stable water is more important than exact parameters.

Diet:
Provide a variety of leaf litter for the snail to graze on. Their primary food is the algae that grows on most tank surfaces. A natural environment with leaf litter, mosses and plants provides the snail with everything they need for a staple diet. Feeding commercial foods should be seen giving a treat, not a regular meal. Feed sparingly. Feed fresh leaves such as spinach, nettles and dandelion.

Live Arrival Guarantee:
Should a snail die during transport, we will refund the cost of this snail. In such a case please inform us within an hour of delivery with a picture of the dead snail. If there was extensive damage to the packaging, we would be grateful for a picture of the box as well.

Acclimatising:
Please acclimatise them slowly in a container over a period of several hours, mixing your tank water with the water they came in, slowly increasing (drip with airline) the amount of tank water until you have a mixture of 1/3 transport and 2/3 tank water. After that net them out and put them into their new home.

Special Care:
Its also important to remember that Nerite Snail care also includes how they are put into the tank. Avoid dropping Nerite Snails into the water and letting them float to the bottom to land in various random positions. Lucky Nerites will land upright and be able to quickly get acclimated to their new surroundings. The unlucky snails will land upside down. Nerite Snails have a very difficult time turning themselves over to the upright position. In most cases it’s almost impossible for them right themselves. Nerites left upside down can die that way. Make sure Nerites are placed in the tank in the upright position so they get off to a good start. Also note that the can climb out of your tank so special care is needed.
