While some Nerite Snails are from saltwater or brackish water environments, this item is a freshwater species. Freshwater snails are not available for shipping and are only sold in our Lancaster, PA retail store.

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 planted 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.
