Yes, that I know of. Zebra is the most commonly found, and I believe they are the ones sold at Petco. I got a rarer kind at my LPS, a Ruby Spotted Nerite (Sometimes called Onion Nerite).

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

ooh the Ruby sounds interesting....but i think i am getting a Zebra because petco is the only one in my area that carries them :) Cant wait for the little guy, my tank has a lot of algae(when i was a beginner i put it by a window-so smart of me huh?) and i have algae tablets for him if he is a really good little cleaner :) can also give him fresh veggies once a month or so.

How often should he get the algae tablets ?

I feed mine algae tablets every 2 or 3 days. Sometimes he doesn't eat them, though.

Make sure that you have a secure lid, I've heard stories of them crawling out, mine never has, though. =)

Thanks, i do have a lid and i have a lot of algae in my tank right now, so i think i can hold off on the algae tablets for awhile, then i will give it to him 2-3 times a week. I sure hope mine dosent crawl out

Make sure to post pictures when you get him!! =)

How often are you doing water changes, and how much water is being changed? Do you have a gravel siphon?

I found that mine loves cucumber.

I will post a pic! :) I do water changes once a week, and change about 25-30% of the water normally. I do have a gravel siphon, and use it with every water change by vacuuming the gravel.



Cucumber- i will put that on my list :)

Awesome. That's just what you need to be doing. ;) I've heard they like spinach too, but I haven't tried it yet. ;)

I have two tiger nerite snails with Teeney in my 10 Gal that I got at petco. I don't have algae problems, I just got them cos they're cute and can't reproduce in freshwater.

I put them in a betta cup with algae wafers broken into pieces about every other day and float them in the tank. I leave them in the cup until they aren't focused on the food anymore, and are just crawling around. I do this so that teeny cannot steal their food xD
