ugh Benzema won't leave the snail to eat the algae wafers. I threw 1/4 of one in there and Benzema got to it and he wouldn't stop eating it! He kept carrying it around in his mouth... I thought he wouldn't like it!

the only plan matter mine eat is the dieing stuff... Honestly my nerite is happier munching above the waterline, I've got the track marks to prove it.

Okay well I put in about 1/4 of a wafer into the tank and looks like Benzema ate all of it cause he is FAT!!! ugh is he going to be okay I probably just won't feed him tomorrow but can he ate algae or is he gonna be constipated... Im surprised he ate it cause he is really picky

Are nerites really inactive because they haven't moved much since I got them?

I'm afraid of the answer, I've had one for a week, and it hasn't moved.

Ya dead snails reak to high heaven, pull him out and smell him, I have 4 nerites 3 in a 90 gallon and 1 in a 5 gallon betta tank, mine move around quite a bit I was actually surprised at how fast they move. I dont feed them anything special they just go around cleaning my tank. they may not move to much if they dont have to for food, quit feeding for a few days and see if they get more active. Also are you sure they are freshwater snails? Nirites can be in both saltwater and freshwater.

yeah they are freshwater. The first day I got them they were all quick to move around... they even climbed above the water line and just chilled up there. I added him to the actual tank on Wed. and he was moving around not a lot just moved from one little spot to the other. he hasn't moved since.
