Frequently Asked Questions
1. Does Nerite Snail eat plants? What is their diet?
They feed on algae fouling on tank walls, snags, and stones (soft film algae, soft green algae, soft brown algae, and brown diatoms ). However, they don’t feed on tank plants. They also feed on leftover foods and waste matter in the aquarium.
Nerite snails' famous feature is their appetite for algae. They really clean tanks.
2. Breeding of Nerite Snail
Nerite snails will not breed in pure freshwater. They can successfully be bred only in brackish water. So if you get 2 snails, there will only be 2 snails for the rest of their life.
3. What to Expect from Us
We generally ship young adult Nerite snails that may or may not be fully grown. If you receive smaller-sized snails, they will grow up to 1 inch in diameter in a relatively short amount of time and they will have a longer lifespan to clean up the algae for you.

The duckweed arrived promptly and packaged well. There was a decent amount of it, enough to cover half the surface of my forty gallon goldfish tank. Unfortunately it was eaten quickly by the goldfish, however this was not the fault of the suppliers.
