Nerite Snail

The nerite snail is another useful tank cleaner. Nerites are fast feeders and will readily consume diatoms, cynobacteria and some species of hair algae. The downside is that they are sub tidal snails that live out of the water between tides. Refugiums and aquariums should be fitted with a rim or lid to prevent escape. They can survive for days in a dry habitat as they store water in their shells, so they can be safely added back if they happen to crawl out. Overall they are very hardy snails and can easily right themselves if they fall over. Sizes vary from medium to large ranging from 1/2" to 1 1/2" long.
