Are you sure they're nerite snails?

To the op: I have 2 in each of my 10g tanks, 1 in my 5.5g & 4 in my 46g. My smaller tanks have had a green algae problem, especially 2 of the 10g tanks, these little guys have really done some work since they were added about a month ago.I was fortunate to find a local breeder & I am very temped to get a few more but don't really have any place to put them. I'm almost begining to love the snails more than the fish . . . almost.

Not all nerites are algae eating machines. I got two, and one of them is an awesome cleaner. The other one is super lazy and only leaves little lines through the algae and spends 75% of its time riding on the shell of the other nerite.
