The Red, Gold, and Black Nerite Snail Combo contains an even quantity mix of the following rare species! These 3 snails create an extremely attractive color combination while providing diligent scavenging and algae eating services!
Most of the nerite snails we offer have very similar care requirements and characteristics. They inhabit fresh and brackish water areas and cannot reproduce in freshwater. These snails are very effective algae eaters and will thrive in a mature aquarium that has plenty of algae and biofilm growth. Some nerite snails are initially finicky about eating dry foods, but most will come to accept them, especially with foods that are high in spirulina or other plant content. Fresh vegetables are typically accepted as well. Nerite snails are hardy in a mature, stable, well-maintained aquarium, but they are not as hardy as some other snail species in subpar setups. It is important to remember that scavengers such as snails do not consume as much oxygen as most fish, but they still contribute to the bioload of the aquarium and they should not be overstocked long-term.
It should also be noted that, while these snails can live in a wide variety of pH levels, they will live for much longer in alkaline water of over 7.0 pH. If they are kept in acidic water, they are more prone to experience shell erosion. Calcium supplementation (especially when using R/O water) is highly recommended for maintaining magnificent shell quality.
