NERITE SNAIL THE BEST ALGAE EATER IN PLANTED TANK

Not Sold in Stores! Due to the popularity of our Nerite Snail, it may sell out. As of Today we do have a limited supply 

These eye-catching snails' shells have a truly unique and beautiful pattern - they are a lovely dark amber color with small black marking that form encircling stripes. Additionally, they serve some very useful purposes, as all Nerite Snails do. They clean algae off of glass, plants, and decorations, they eat hair algae, and they keep your substrate clean and the correct color.
 
Nerite Snails are widely believed to be the single best snail in the aquarium hobby for eating algae. They are totally safe with any fish, shrimp, or plants, and are completely peaceful. Nerite Snails require salt water to reproduce, so they will never overpopulate your aquarium (as some freshwater snails are known to do).  They are also peaceful and safe with live plants, fish, and shrimp, making them great for community tanks.
Nerite Snails reach around 3cm (1-1.5 cm ) They do not eat plants (only algae), so they are perfectly suitable for planted tanks.
 
RECOMMENDED TANK PARAMETERS: 
  • pH level range: 6.5 - 8.5 
  • Temperature range: 20° - 29° C)
  • Water type: Medium-hard

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. Do 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 to algae. They really clean tanks.

     

    2. Do Nerite Snail breed and overpopulated the aquarium?
    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 till 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 the longer lifespan to clean up the algae for you.
