General Information

Nerite Snails are a popular snail for aquariums.  They can not breed in freshwater so they will not overpopulate your tank.  They are also probably the best algae eating snail in the hobby.  

Nerite Snails are sensitive to copper like all invertebrates.  They are also sensitive to fenbendazole which is a dewormer medication that kills hydra and planaria.   


Nerite Snails have a roundish body and are a greenish yellow olive color.
