My bees! jk the nerites are here

Finally after months of wanting a snail I finally ordered them :)

I got three nerites one for each tank they are so cute!!!
The one that has a single shot will be Benzema's companion little Mezut! the other two are nameless until their owners name them :)

Lastly is there anything I have to do to add them to the tank... Like QT or acclimmate them. I put them in a one gallon tank temporarily to see if they will eat the algae wafers I bought them and to check out their habits

I think they're good to go, I never QT'd my snail.
You're so lucky, horned nerites are one of my "omg I really want it" snails. :)

They are probably wild caught, do you know?
Wild caught animals are usually more picky.

I don't think they are wild caught but I don't know for sure... right now they aren't really moving that much. They were for a bit so I know they are all alive but they suddenly stopped moving. i threw in a wafer... should I remove it if they don't eat
