Totally safe with any fish, plant or shrimp, these snails are considred the best algae eaters among many aquarists. They will also never reproduce in your freshwater aquarium. Tiger Nerites will grow to about 1 - 1.5 inch at most and will thrive in virtually any tank.

    Nerite snails

    I purchased 10 snails as housekeepers for my aquarium, they are a hard working crew! Shipment was quick and they all arrived ready for work! Loving them and their work!

    Tiger Eye Nerite Snails (5-Pack)

    Posted by Alec Chan on 10 Dec 2021

    The shipping took a bit longer than I expected (~8 days) but it’s the holiday season so that was expected. Besides that, all 5 of my Nerite snails arrived in GREAT condition and all of them are alive. I acclimated them to my water temperature for a bit and then popped them into my planted tank, and they were all out and about within an hour of me placing them in. I highly recommend this website and company to anyone who is looking to order aquarium-related items online!

    I ordered ten of these snails and not only did they arrive alive, but all of them were exploring the tank within hours of my putting them into the tank. I might order more.
