Zebra Nerite Snail

Zebra Nerite Snail

Scientific Name: Neritina natalensis
Common Name: Nerite snail

Temperament: Peaceful
Diet: Omnivorous
Temperature: 75–81 °F (24–27 °C)
Water pH: 6.5-7.5 pH
Size: 1 inches (2-2.5 cm)
Temperature range: 65 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit
Water type: kH 12-18; gH 12-18

Feeding
Nerite Snails are herbivores and are widely known as one of, if not the most, voracious algae-eaters out of any snail. If there is not enough algae present in the aquarium, their diet can be supplemented with algae wafers or blanched vegetables (such as kale, zucchini, carrots, etc.).

Breeding
As mentioned above, Nerite snails will not breed in pure freshwater. They can successfully be bred only in brackish water (semi-salty water, or water that has more salt water then fresh water, but less than sea water). If you are interested in breeding Nerite snails and you have a tank with brackish water, we suggest using a calcium-rich substrate (such as crushed coral) to support shell growth in the young. The water temperature should be kept around 79-80 degrees Fahrenheit to encourage breeding. Successful breeding is more likely with a group of 5 Nerite snails or more, as this makes it more likely that the group will contain both males and females. Once the snails are comfortable in their environment, they will lay eggs that will soon hatch into larvae without shells. The young snails will  develop shells, and after some time may be placed in either a brackish water or freshwater aquarium.
