Perfect and healthy!

Arrived alive, thriving and right to work they went! I have other nerites, but these racers are a total powerhouse against diatoms, more than any other so far!

Great little eaters

My two Nerite snails made it all the way to Hawaii in record time. After accumulating they started cleaning the tank and haven’t stopped. Two cute little guys.

Beautiful snails, outstanding service

This was my first order with this shop, but I’ve already placed another. The snails were beautiful, healthy, and very well packaged, and the staff were extremely responsive and helpful. I’ve had my little guys for a week now and they’re still doing great.

I was on the hunt for red racers and came across this site.seen there red racers were out of stock so I decided to try two yellow racers out..arrived within 48 hours,snails adapted to tanks quickly and just like the red racers these guys kick butt at keeping to clean..glad I purchased from here and will be purchasing again soon .highly recommend

Not yellow, but healthy and big

Bought 2 yellow racer nerites. Both are brown/tan, which is disappointing. However, both were large, healthy, and active. They zoom around my tank getting the algae. Good pattern, just wish they were actually yellow.
