Found in South America, Central American and the Caribbean, these Nerite Snails are extremely rare in the aquarium hobby. They are peaceful animals, just like any other nerite snail and have incredible and unique patterns. (See pictures above)
They can breed in captivity but their eggs will only hatch in brackish water, so you don't have to worry about them breeding in your aquarium. Nerite snails are extremely hardy and live in a vast variety of water parameters.
They are great scavengers that will dig under the gravel, if needed, to get that extra algae meal.
This particular species is extremely hard to find and we are happy to be able to offer them to our customers.
