lol
they can live quite long if they're fed well and have enough calcium for their shells + hard water XD

When I first started keeping tanks about 37 years ago, I hated snails that came with my plants. Then I learned how useful they are, now I love it when I get new snails from plants, or bought on purpose.

That would be awesome! I would so buy one from you. Is it hard to breed Nerite snails?

I will need to get the eggs into brackish water as soon as I see them. I tried it before but since I didn't realize what they were at first it was weeks before I got them into brackish water

I wouldn't sell them but you'd have to send postage, that's all.

or I might trade for some plants

Nerites are a little harder to breed XD they do need brackish water as states above. they are also not hermaphrodites so there needs to be a female/male pair :)

babies also nee to be fed algae etc :D

i love snails but im guarded against hermaphrodite species. i stick with nerite snails and any that need brackish to lay eggs. the Nerite is still rather messy but he's effective in tank cleaning.

I Dont have snails because i fear the over-breeding factor. Plus as of 2 years before i dont think they would have survived my cynodontis.
