This snail has protruding horns from its shell and can be found in a wide range of colors and patterns. Nerite Snails are some of the best algae eaters to have in your planted tank. They are extremely easy to care for and undemanding. They feed entirely on algae alone and a small group of them can clean a large aquarium covered in diatoms within a few days. They do have a large appetite though and if they’ve eaten all the algae in the tank, it may be necessary to feed them algae wafers or blanched veggies. However, they have no interest in plant leaves so your aquascape is safe.

When choosing tank mates for your Nerites, avoid species that eat snails. These include Loaches, Crayfish, Large Cichlids, Goldfish, and other larger species. We prefer keeping our Nerites in most of our Buce tanks along with Amano Shrimp, Neocardina Shrimp, Caridina Shrimp, Oticinclus, Siamese Algae Eaters, Tetras, Cories, Bettas and other peaceful fish.
