i have a red spot nerite all alone in one of my tanks and she produces tons of eggs. it looks like she's decorating for christmas. also if a nerite gets out of the tank ,even if they have been out for a few days, put them back in the water for awhile. i thought mine was for sure dead, she was out of the water for atleast a couple of days, tossed her back in and she was fine. i almost threw her away.

How big is the tank? If its cycled AND you keep up with water changes - apple snails are pretty neat but I would suggest at least 5G or bigger since they can get large. Nerites are pretty cool too.

Pond snails and ramshorns will reproduce like mad if you have more then 1 in the tank. I got one lone pond snail that hitchhiked on some duckweed. He is a pretty neat little dude but very small. inda worried the betta will eat him
