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

Neritina species 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.

  • Do not reproduce and breed in the freshwater environment. 
  • Unique and beautiful snail in the planted aquarium market.
  • Friendly snails, safe for plants, fish, snail, and other aquarium's inhabitants.
  • Control the algae, fish food waste, and any decompose materials such as the dead body of fish, snail or dead plants. 
  • Balanced your aquarium water and create a great ecosystem environment.
  • Easy to control. They breed eggs but don't usually hatch in freshwater and doesn't consider as an invasive species in the controlled aquarium.

Zebra Nerite Snail Orders.

Received my nerites on time and in pretty good shape. My only concern was that some of my nerites had chipped shells. Not sure if this is normal but I'm hoping the cuttlefish bone added to my tank helps resolve this. Other than this, all of my little guys look pretty good and happy.

Good looking snail

The snail that survived the post office bad handling is fantastic and better than I expected. It was in the mid 90’s and the USPO placed the snails in the sun on my porch, not knocking, nor ringing the doorbell. Even though the snails were packed in insulation and wrapped in three reflective bubble wrap layers the box just could not stand up to the placement on my porch in the sun for 30 min. This fantastic company.refunded the cost of the two snakes that were DOA. these guys are fantastic to work with and I will replace the two that were DOA via the USPO when the it is cooler. Thanks again for the fast and perfect support coming from Aquarium Plants Factory.
