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!
