Nerite snails 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.
As always all shrimp and snails came in perfect health! Not 1 dead critter and a few extra on each order to spare. Always a pleasure buying from Flip Aquatics!
