Sometimes referred to as "Tiger Eye Nerite", The Olive nerite seems a monochromatic green/ brown. Upon further examination, however, these nerites are actually Pin-striped!

Broadly considered the gold standard in algae management, Nerites work tirelessly to keep your glass and decor spot-free.

These little guys play such an important role in a balanced aquarium! They are nature's recyclers, and work tirelessly to scrub detritus, algae and fish poo from your tank.

Peaceful and easy- going, these snails do not eat live plants, but you may see them resting on green foliage in order to scrub away any algae or biofilms on the surface. 

These guys are undemanding, but would prefer a planted, community tank within normal parameters. They do like a bit of cuttlebone here and there to keep their shells hard and clear, and will grow to about 1". Grab some of that here: Cuttlebone by Weight

These snails do not reproduce in a freshwater aquarium. They will try by leaving tiny little "pearls" on the glass and decorations. These eggs will never hatch, however, and will slowly dissolve over time.

Always a pleasure!

I’ve ordered snails and plants from Glass Grown Aquatics four times now and have been pleasantly surprised each time! The plants are in amazing shape and are great quality and the snails are always healthy and ready to get to work in my planted tanks! This past purchase I had to use customer service due to personal issues with delivery and Cass & Family were excellent help!

I will continue to order from here in the future as it is my most favorite and most trusted aquatics store! I rate it a 100/10!
