I have two tiger nerite snails with Teeney in my 10 Gal that I got at petco. I don't have algae problems, I just got them cos they're cute and can't reproduce in freshwater.

I put them in a betta cup with algae wafers broken into pieces about every other day and float them in the tank. I leave them in the cup until they aren't focused on the food anymore, and are just crawling around. I do this so that teeny cannot steal their food xD

Thanks Maisy and Teeney! Gteat advice! I will either be getting him tomorrow or Friday! I am so excited! Do you think i should get one or two? I am siked!

I will try pinch and cucumbers. @MaisyDawgThirteen, glad to hear i am doing the right thing :)
One or two, it's your choice. Just know that if you get a male & a female, they WILL produce eggs (the eggs won't hatch though) and Ive heard from others that the eggs are annoying to clean. If you're lucky you will get two males like me :) it's very difficult to tell their gender and it took me about a month to realize mine are both males xD

Thanks Teeney, but i have heard that they can only reproduce in brackish and marine environments :)
When it says they "cannot successfully reproduce in fresh water" it means you won't end up with babies. They make eggs no matter what water they're in but they only hatch when in brackish/salt water. :/

Thanks Teeney, thank goodness i didn't make that mistake:shock:
Well you won't have babies, you will have eggs that'll never hatch xD
