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.

    Best snails around

    This was my 4th purchase of snails from MA. I am so happy with these snails. They wake up right away and get to work. They are healthy and hardy. All the snails I have purchased from local aquariums have died, they keep son going!

    The instructions said they might not venture out of their shells for a few days. Mine were roaming around within an hour. All healthy!

    All 5 showed up as healthy as can be. Within about 5 seconds of being in my tank, they all took off and started doing what they do best.

    they arrived in a timely manner, was packed well. As soon as I put them in my tank 3 of them went to work. About an hour later the other two were off and crawling. Haven't stop since. Would buy from again.

    Nerite Snails

    Posted by Sue Weaver on 18 May 2021

    Ordered two sets (10 snails) all arrived healthy and active. Was a little worried that the Goliath goldfish in my 55. -gallon tank might eat them, but the 5 I put in his tank are all doing fine. The other five are thriving in the 30-gallon tank with the swordtails. All is well, would buy again!
