Zebra nerite snails

Unlike mystery snails, they don't have tempting anntenai (IDK...) for a Betta to bite and scrape his head on. They also eat diatoms and algae mainly. That's right, go zebra nerite snails!

Does anyone keep them with Bettas? And do they eat the diatoms that are on sand (I hate how they form on substrate and can't be cleaned up, and since a snail has a hard time moving around on sand I'm not sure that they'd eat the algae and diatoms on it) Thanks.

If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows

I have been looking for a nerite snail forever! No one has them here :(
I was going to buy online, but 6.00-8.00 shipping for 1 snail is a bit too much for me.They truly are cool snails. :]

On the Petco site, they're listed as "Marine". Are there two different types, or are they either/or?

Sequin (m), Shortcake (f), Westley (m), and Sir Righty of Walton (m).

They can live in fresh, but only reproduce in saltwater.

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!
