The Pink Lady Nerite Snail, scientifically known as Clithon sowerbyanum, is an enchanting and visually striking gastropod that adds a delightful touch to freshwater aquariums. Known for its vibrant pink or magenta-hued shell, this snail species is a popular choice among aquarists for its captivating appearance and its beneficial role in tank maintenance.


Pink Lady Nerite Snails (Clithon sowerbyanum) hail from diverse freshwater habitats across Southeast Asia, primarily located in countries like Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. These snails are indigenous to this region, commonly inhabiting freshwater environments, particularly in rivers, streams, and shallow waters with rocky substrates.

High demand for Pink Lady Nerite Snails arises from their stunning appearance and their effective algae-controlling properties, making them sought after by aquarists. However, their scarcity is compounded by limited availability due to natural factors, as well as regulatory restrictions on collection and export in certain regions.
