Darwin Nerite Snails


A very ornamental type snail with each snail displaying varying degrees of patterning. These snails live in both fresh & salt water. They are popular with freshwater aquarists as part of their cleanup crew, cleaning up numerous types of algae. They will not breed in a freshwater environment. 

Please do note that nerite snails have a hard time uprighting themselves. Please avoid dropping the snails into the aquarium, place them in a spot in the upright position for best practise. 

These snails are Australian sourced.
