I ordered these to go with a Betta that I have in a 5 gallon tank. They are the perfect companions for a Betta since they don't have eyes that poke out and the Betta mostly ignores them. I ordered 3 and received 4, all in healthy condition. They move faster around the glass than I expected, but kind of like creepy ghosts. As in, you never see them move, but every time I check the tank they are in a different spot.
Bought one Sunthorn Nerite but two came in the bag. One was noticeably more active from the start, but both seem adjusted and happy now! They were well packaged and came quickly, and are already starting work on keeping the glass clean. Great buy!
All snails arrived alive and are now looking healthy and active in my tank! (This little guy lost a tiny piece of outer-most shell somewhere along the way here, but it didn't seem to hurt him, and just makes him even more adorable somehow.)
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.
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.
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.
