These assorted tiny snails are known by many names such as Thorn / Horned / Spiky Nerite because of the cool looking spiked on their shelf. Each snail has its unique shelf pattern and color. We will randomly pick the good one for you.

Neritina species are also known as Nerita / Nerite Snail. They do well in freshwater and brackish water. They are suitable for planted aquarium because they are small and can take care of the algae problem. They can eat many types of food and algae including Phytoplankton, Diatoms Algae, Film/Slime Algae, Black Beard Algae and Green/Brown Spot Algae which are very tough on glass and hard to remove by hand.

Neritina Snails eat invertebrate pellets, flake foods, algae, waste and cooked vegetables such as carrot, zucchini, kale, spinach, or cucumber.

Cool little snail..

Decided to grab one of these since APF suggested i get a snail along with shrimp and fish which I'm glad i did. I dropped this little guy in the tank and he almost immediately headed straight for the front glass of the aquarium. It's kinda fun watching it eat non stop, its little mouth just keeps going and going.. nom...nom....nom...nom..nom...nom..... I can see the trail of extremely clean glass its leaving in its trail!! Algae on glass doesn't stand a change against this little snail.

Received extra snails!

Great size and appetite, I love seeing them eat away at the algae on my glass and maneuver themselves onto my plants. They are truly swift and healthy, but definitely add some calcium to your tank to maintain strong horns.

Does the job

Package was well wrapped. There was very little water with the 10 snails. To my surprise, after “hibernating” for a day and a half, they were all alive. It’s only been a few days and they’ve done a great job eating the algae. I deducted one star because mine were not brightly colored like the ones in the picture.

Great purchase!

First-time buyer and glad I decided to give them a try. All the plants came in excellent condition and very healthy. They were all packaged individually by type of plant and were very easy to take out and separate for planting. I was very happy with the plants. I also ordered some Sun Thorn snails (3) but they sent me 4! I was very excited because they look awesome! Though once getting them in the Tank only 1 of the 4 moved. I checked on the rest 2 days later and they were dead. As soon as I picked them up they fell out their shell. Other than that, I will buy from them again.
