Agreed, I've learned a lot just from reading everyone else's threads.

I believe the snail I'm looking to buy is not of the smaller variety, because I saw similar ones listed as "little".

What do they mean by "little?" And "little" as in the size when you buy them? Most Nerite, except for the Horned and Batik, mature out between 1.5"-2".

Ahh yeah forgot to mention they were thorned nerites. Oh actually, I just realised, is there a difference between horned and thorned Nerites?

Here's the link: https://www.aquariumplantsfactory.co...smart_campaign

And the link for the "little" ones: https://www.aquariumplantsfactory.co...n-nerite-snail

There's no difference between "Thorned" and "Horned;" both are[I] Clithon Corona/Diadema[/I . Sun Thorn are Clithon Donovani and are bigger. Thorned/Horned are .25"-.50" when mature. Sun Thorn are .5" to 1" at maturity.

I have a coupon code for APF. If you decide to buy from them send me a PM.

That makes sense. I'll probably go with the Sun Thorned Nerites, in that case.
