My nerite is great. ;) He is stuck to the side of the tank in my avatar.

Silverfang is right, the baby is a pond snail and the hitch-hiker is a ramshorn.

Nerites do need salt water to hatch. They will lay eggs in freshwater but they don't hatch. My friends tank is covered in little sesame seed nerite eggs.

Same here, I have two males. If I wouldve got a male and a female- I probably would've rehomed one. Im too OCDish to deal with eggs all over xD

They are in Tupperware with some algae wafers . I have been picking out the rams horns. I hopefully caught before a population explosion.A friend is taking my snails for his turtle pond
