Nerite Snails: Two Separate Varieties

The Nerite Snail is another type of saltwater snail that you can purchase for your fish tank. Snails are great to add to your aquarium because they will clean off all parts of your aquarium and eventually they will control the algae in your tank.

These snails will require a strict salinity level of somewhere between 1.022 and 1.025. They will also require to to keep a heater in your fish tank. You will need to set the heater at around 73 degrees. Your saltwater tank cannot get over 76 degrees. To avoid your tank from over heating you will want to avoid placing it next to windows or heating vents. Usually a saltwater tank will stay at around 75 degrees with no problems.

These snails are great because they are good for the beginner. They are very easy to care for and pretty much take care of themselves except for the whole food aspect. These snails will stay very small and will not get larger than one inch in length. You can feed this snail a variety of different types of micro foods, invertebrate food, brine shrimp or seaweed. You can purchase seaweed and place it on a veggie clip. The veggie clip has suction cups on it and you can place it on the bottom side of the tank. This way the snails will have something to eat once the algae starts to run low. You will probably want to purchase at least one Nerite Snail per gallon. The Nerite snail is not to be confused with the Cerith Snail. The Cerith Snail is more of a spiral shape and doesn't come in a wide varieties of colors like the Nerite Snail does.
