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.

Perfect

All of these little guys arrived alive and active. They took care of built-up algae in my 2.5 tank in a matter of days.

I buy all of my plants, and now my snails, from Aquarium Plants Factory. A 5 Star company all the way. Customer service is amazing.

The little guys jumped right out of the bag, into the tank and took off. I think a couple extra relatives may have even crawled into the bag.
Great transaction, great product, great price, great company.
