My nerite is great. ;) He is stuck to the side of the tank in my avatar.

Silverfang is right, the baby is a pond snail and the hitch-hiker is a ramshorn.

5 and 5.5 Gallon Tanks:

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. :)

Nerites do need salt water to hatch. They will lay eggs in freshwater but they don't hatch. My friends tank is covered in little sesame seed nerite eggs.

Same here, I have two males. If I wouldve got a male and a female- I probably would've rehomed one. Im too OCDish to deal with eggs all over xD
