I usually don't like snails but I love Nerites. I had algae on the glass that was too hard to reach near the substrate but they did a great job reaching those areas. When they came I thought 3 had died bc they weren't moving but then they woke up a few hours later. I got 3 olive colored and one zebra. I wish I could have chosen 2 zebras and 2 red racers but oh well. They are doing their job.
The image on the website is a bit misleading. It shows tiger nerite. So I was expecting to receive at least one or two tiger nerite. But the four I received included one olive (?), two zebra (different patterns), and one ? (lightning or zebra?), and no tiger. It is "assorted" so this is not incorrect. I should have asked if the tiger is included or not. Also the shell of one of them (the unknown one) has a big crack . It was moving for a day and a half. But now it's stopped moving. Hopefully it's just sleeping...
Really cute! Each one is a different color so they are easy to keep track of.
One snail died within a day
Snails arrived quickly and all alive. They are feasting in 2 aquariums with algae issues and doing a great job. I will order from here again. Thanks so much!!
Packaging and shipping always is great. This is actually the first time in almost 10 years I received anything that had a dead one inside. 1 Nerite was dead on arrival. I am not upset at all though. love you guys!
Received snail quickly. All were alive and doing great!!
Had some delivery issue were the post office sent it to the wrong town, had to wait an extra day and with temps getting close to 100 degrees outside I was getting worried they might not survive. Got them and still alive and happy doing very well in my new aquarium
First time buying from this site and also the snails. Shipping had me a little worried as it got bounced around at a hub and was 3 days late getting to me. But all 8 snails I purchased arrived alive and are already at work in my tanks doin their thing. Will definitely be back to make future purchases!
