Nerites can't successfully reproduce without brackish/salt water, as the offspring go through a larval stage. I have some Olive Nerites that are almost 3 yrs, and some year old Zebra and Tiger Nerites. They do a great job on the tank. Downside is that they can lay these little white eggs (that don't hatch) all over.

but you dont have to keep any if you dont want. make sure to poke the substrate~
Poking the substrate I have no problem doing. I put everything together. I was happy to note that during their time in quarantine, the plant root systems just about doubled in size :)

I'll probably use one of the filter cartridges from my larger cycled tank to help develop a cycle.

I set everything up, here's what I have currently. No fish. Ikiryo is in my big tank divided to keep him safe from Ranmaru the other betta who resides there.

looks good...my only suggestion is more plants. But that is only my preference.

I will get more plants as soon as I can. ^^ I kind of have to get a new light bulb for my big tank right now though, it wouldn't turn on this morning. Hope a few days won't cause any harm. I have no fish in there so, fingers crossed.

I'm monitoring the parameters 2-3 times a day. :3
