Neritina Natalensis is commonly known as the Tiger Nerita / Nerite Snail.

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.

Healthy little buggers

These snails are adorable, active, and healthy! I got them to reduce the algae growing in my guppy nursery tank and they are as active as my fish! Very satisfied with the quality.

Sexy little snails.

These little snails are freaking sexy. I think they maintain their girlish figures by staying on a vegan diet. I don't know the details, but algae must be very low calorie because they eat all day and never get fat. I'm thinking about changing my diet after watching them.

Active snails!

These snails are as entertaining as they are colorful and do a great job at cleaning the tank.
