Liven up your aquarium with one of each of every Nerite Snail variety we have to offer! These beautiful snails are great for giving your aquarium some exotic flair, but they also serve some very useful purposes. They clean algae off of glass, plants, and decorations, they eat hair algae, and they keep your substrate clean.

Nerite Snails are widely believed to be the best snail in the aquarium hobby for eating algae.  They are totally safe with any fish, shrimp, or plants, and are completely peaceful. Nerite Snails require salt water to reproduce, so they will never overpopulate your aquarium (as some freshwater snails are known to do).
 
This combo pack includes the following:
  • 1 Zebra Nerite (Neritina natalensis):  features gold and black zebra-like stripes 
  • 1 Tiger Nerite (Neritina semiconica):  a dark amber color with small black markings 
  • 1 Black Racer Nerite (Neritina pulligera):  has a gleaming ebony shell
  • 1 Sun Thorn Nerite (Clithon donovani):  very tiny with a black/yellow spiral pattern, or a solid color (often brown or olive green). 
  • 1 Tiger Eye Nerite (Vitta usnea):  shell resembles a highly-polished Tiger's Eye stone 
  • 1 Zebra Thorn Nerite (Clithon corona/diadema):  very tiny with a yellow and black spiral pattern.
 
When keeping any type of Nerite Snails, it's a good idea to make sure the water line in your aquarium isn't too high, as these snails tend to climb up beyond the water line.  Additionally, Nerite Snails do not tolerate water with high nitrate levels.  All freshwater snails are very sensitive to copper, so watch out for copper if you use tap water in your tank.
