Enhance your aquarium with an assortment of Nerite Snails. These attractive snails not only add f exotic style, but also provide practical benefits. They scrub algae from glass, plants, and decorations, keep biofilm and bacterial blooms in check, and help maintain a clean substrate.

Nerite Snails are suitable for any aquarium, as they are safe with fish and shrimp and gentle in nature. As these snails require saltwater to reproduce, they are cannot overpopulate the tank like some freshwater varieties. Moreover, they only consume algae, and leftover detritus, leaving plants and other substrates untouched.
 
When caring for Nerite Snails, the water line in your tank should not be too high, as these snails have a tendency to go wandering. Keep your lid tight!

High nitrate levels are also not tolerated by these snails. Like all invertebrates, freshwater snails are very susceptible to copper, be mindful of copper levels in medication and some tap water.

  • pH:  6.5 - 8.0
  • KH:  5 - 12 dKH
  • Minimum Tank Size:  2 gallons per snail

Nerite Snail Care Guidelines:

  • Diet:  Nerite Snails may rely on algae for sustenance if available in the aquarium, yet their nutrition can be enhanced with algae wafers or blanched vegetables like zucchini, kale, spinach, or cucumber.
  • Social Behavior:  Peaceful and solitary; will not engage with tankmates.
  • Origin:  Northeast, East, and South Africa (Zebra Nerite), India and Indo-Pacific (Tiger Nerite)
  • Average Adult Size:  1 - 1.5 inches (2.5 - 3.8 cm)

All five made it to me safely!

When I first opened them, I wasn't sure if they were okay, but I put them in tank water in a jar, and they all started moving around within a couple of minutes. There was a good variety of different types of nerites. They are working on the algae in my aquariums now. I'm happy!
