Post Pictures of Your Snails here!!!

You know we all love our little cleaners...!!!!

I am getting my Nerite Snail special ordered from petco because they didn't have them in stock on Tuesday. I can't wait for him to be with Honeycomb and my Marimo moss ball in my 10 gal.! I just wanted to see what i should suspect with my little guy! I hope the algae ball won't take the nutrients from too much of the algae, but if it does i have algae wafers!

Also, What species of Nerite snail is the best? Which one do you recommend?
Also, how do you pronounce Nerite? I know, weird question..


Thanks everybody!!!!


So...

POST AWAY!!!

What other critters live in this tank? Most of the bettas I have will hunt/kill snails. From observing the behavior, the longest period a snail will live in my tank will be 1-2 weeks before the hunters eat them or rip them to shreds.

Only my betta :)

He is NEVER aggressive, and rarely even flares at himself in the mirror

I have some old snail pics from the golden apple snails I once had. I guess they sort of count.

Here is when I first got them via the mail:



Here is a female laying eggs:



Here is the clutch, newly hatched:

Yeah, they were cute, until they grew up and took over my tank. Made my poor Finlay (white opaque halfmoon male) sick with all their bio load and eventually he died.

Never again....... -___-

I AM SO SORRY! I have had a mystery snail before, but they produced too much waste, got too big and were not the best algae eaters. YES< they can be little monsters..thats why i want a NERITE snail hahah

Why not get a otto cat or a cory cat? Any snail in my tank that survives the betta tend to get sucked up when bust out the siphon. Once a snail gets in the water cooler bottle, I can't possibly fit my hand through the neck of the bottle to save them. I was going to buy 2 otto cats, but instead I came home with 3 female bettas.
