I guess a nerite would work, one only. The bioload is at its max. don't push it further.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Don't they only breed in brackish water or SW?

yeah I was only gonna get one, b/c of bio-load AND breeding....if my tank is topless (water line stops about 3-4in from top of tank) will I have to worry about the snail getting out?

They will lay eggs in fresh water but the eggs won't hatch. One of my winter projects is to breed nerites. If the eggs are placed into brackish water immediately after being laid there is a chance they will hatch!

I never knew that, thanks for answering!! Too bad there aren't any here, even in my LFS. :(
Sareena, I'm not quite sure on runaway snails. I heard they get out if the water quality is bad, though.

Yes, actually. I had one in a 5 gallon with just the hole for the filter and heater wire. Snail still crawled out and fell behind the table. I didn't find him for days.

I have read on this forum that even if they do fall out, try to put them back in. They may have enough moisture in the shell to keep living even if they were out of the tank for a long time.

Absolutely! Free snails for all my little betta forum buddies!

I had to ask the guy at Petco to special order me some, they were $3 each. I just found out that a new LFS has some at the same price. I need 2 more.
