Product Description
Nerite snails are one of the best algae eating animal you can find for an aquarium. You will receive a mixed pack of healthy Nerite snails also known as Neritina natalensis. The snails we ship are adult size ranging from .5-1.5 inches in diameter.

Background and Key Benefits


Nerite snails or Neritina natalensis are freshwater snails related to the mollusk family. They are from the East coast of Africa and are found in rivers and streams. These snails come in a variety of colors and patterns including Zebra, Leopard, and Olive. Nerite snails are common in the aquarium hobby as they are excellent algae eaters. They will clean algae from glass, substrate, and décor. The second reason they are so popular in our hobby is due to the fact that they do not reproduce in freshwater. In the wild these snails return to brackish water to breed and the baby snails require brackish water for early stages of growth. Therefore, Nerite snails will not overpopulate in an aquarium.

Along with serving practical purposes in the aquarium, the snails have  beautiful shells and they are fun to watch. If you look at your glass closely after adding them, you will see the tiny track marks these snails make as they graze on algae!

We keep these snails on pool filtered sand and in bare bottom tanks with a Matten filters. We feed Shrimp King Algae Pops and Shrimp King Snail Stixx along with Indian Almond Leaves for natural biofilm. We also use LED lighting to provide enough natural algae growth  for them to feed. 
Please note: During shipping, snails sometimes go into a hibernation-like state and may not become fully active for up to a week once acclimated to your aquarium.

Good but too many

I ordered 1 but was generously given 2. Not sure what to do with second, no space in nano tank.

Top notch service

First time ordering from flip aquatics. Order 15 nerite snails got 2 extra. Added to my tank and within minutes most of the snails were off to the races. Will definitely be ordering from flip again.

Ordered one and received two. Both snails seem healthy and are doing well. Arrived active in the bag with a warming pack. Very pleased.
