Nerite Snail - Nerita sp. - Small
These Nerite Snails are for saltwater aquariums only. They will not survive in freshwater aquariums.
Nerite Snails (Nerita sp.) have smooth, round shells that are variable in color and patterns. These small snails are hardy algae eaters and are safe in reef aquariums. They will feed on filamentous algae, cyanobacteria and diatoms. Most Nerite Snails stay fairly small and rarely grow to above 1.5 inches in length.
Some species of Nerite Snails are from tidepool environments and may crawl above the water level; a lid on the tank is recommended. While some Nerite Snails are from freshwater or brackish water environments, those sold here are purely marine snails and cannot be kept in freshwater aquariums.
