overview
Nerita Snails are an efficient scavenger ideal for smaller ponds and freshwater community aquariums. The Nerita Snail is a popular choice for keeping uneaten food and algae in check. It is peaceful and will not unexpectedly overpopulate your aquarium or water garden since the Nerita Snail is difficult to breed (impossible in freshwater!).

The Nerita Snails originate from the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean and can be found in the lower regions of rivers. The Nerita Snail should not be housed with any other animals that would like to make a meal of them.

The sex of the Nerita Snail can be determined if there are numerous individuals of the same age kept in the same environment and fed the same foods. In which case, females will be larger than males. In order to reproduce, the Nerita Snail requires brackish water as it has a marine larval stage. Adult snails will live about 1 year under the right conditions.

A scavenger, the Nerita Snail will consume debris, uneaten food, and algae in the pond or aquarium. If insufficient food is present, supplement with a quality flake or pellet food.
