Naturally from India, these Nerite Snails are very common in the aquarium hobby. They are easy to 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. Zebra Nerite Snails, as the name suggests, have very bright, black and yellow stripped shells. They are very good scavengers that will dig under the gravel, if needed, to get that extra algae meal.

Perfect Little Guys!

I bought 3 of these awesome snails because I had bad green spot algae all over the aquarium. They all arrived alive and healthy, and about 15 minutes after adding them to the aquarium they started working. The next day majority of the algae on the glass was clean. they are still happily going around the aquarium eating what's left of the algae. So happy with my purchase and will be buying more from this company in the future!
