Here is a picture of my Nerite snails. The one near the top is a Tiger Nerite snail (Looks more like a football LOL) and the 2 bottom snails are the Zebra Nerite snails. Since August I bought 2 more Tiger Nerite snails and 1 more Zebra Nerite snail. The guy in the petstore also called them "Onion snails".

oh cute! when i researched nerite snail coloration, i thought what I read was that that pattern was "tracked nerite" but i suppose every store calls them something different xD when i bought my two, my store just called them "nerite snails" lol

I agree! They all do the hard work than apple snails! I have to wait to see if Petco restock the nerite snails... I bought them earlier before they run out of those snails.. :O

I had a zebra nerite snail for one week. Then my betta ate it :(
I've thought about trying it again because I have brown algae but not sure if I want to chance it.

Hm :/ could you like, quarantine the betta somewhere while you gave the snail a shot at cleaning the tank up? or do you just have the one tank?

another easy algae cleaning option would be to just buy an algae scrubber. those are harder to kill ;)
