Nerite Snail the best algae eater in Planted Tank
Sulawesi Rabbit Snails (Tylomelania sp.) are one of the rarest snails in the aquarium hobby. Also known as Elephant Snails, their natural habitat is in Indonesia and they are only rarely seen in the United States. The "Rabbit" name likely comes from their rabbit-like faces and drooping antennae that resemble a rabbit's ears. However, the resemblance to an elephant is also clear with their wrinkled, rubbery-looking skin and their long "snouts" (which is functionally more like the snail's foot). Needless to say, these snails are certainly unique in appearance in several aspects!

Diet: They eat algae and decaying plant matter, and they have also been known to munch on more delicate plants.
