The one in the picture is definately a nerite. Lucky you, those snails a kinda hard to come by where I live. However, those things lay eggs everywhere like adhesive and dont come off but you wont see it reproducing unless you have brackish water. So you will be stuck with just that one snails. Wish I was lucky enough to get nerites instead of pond snails lol

well i dunno where the little babies came from then... Though i dont know where they are... I think i may have crushed one in the gravel and I think Xan ate the other one. O.o we'll see what happens. Thanks for all your replies. XD
P.S. If you go to "That Fish Place" online they ship stuff I believe and thats where I got my snail from... Dunno how much it would cost though. :P

I thought snails were a no-no for small tanks due to the bio load?

Lucky! That's a nice hitch hiker to come by. I got a mess of pond snails, I think I took care of most of them now. And I thought I was lucky when I found 2 ramshorn snails. I like them, so they stayed :p

its a five gallon tank and i gravel vacuum every time i change the water. i had an apple snail before and they have an even worse bio load than a nerite. also i have four live plants, so the ammonia never goes up. :P
and he wasnt a hitchhiker. I bought him. :P or her... its laying snail eggs everywhere. XP

I wouldn't suggest a snail in anything under 5g but 5g and over is more suitable. I think anything under 10g shouldn't have fish mates, since most tropicals require 5+ groups. Nerite snails are much smaller, I wouldn't put an adult Apple in a 5g though LOL

I haven't had a problem with any snails. The only thing that ever was/is an issue for me is Cyanobacteria. :P
