    Great snails

    Posted by Greg on 3rd Apr 2016

    Another great animal from APB, my tank went in to HI def after a little bit because of how ravenous these little guys are at eating algae. If I had a bigger tank I'd get more.

    Awesome snails

    Posted by Brian on 10th Dec 2014

    These guys are my new favorite snails. They are huge workhorses. Cool looking flesh. Sad they aren't truly black but still very very cool.

    I was a bit hesitant to order nerites because of some I'd purchased from an LFS that went into hiding on arrival and had appeared only rarely.

    But these are lovely and fearless, happily sliding around the tank chowing down on whatever it is they're eating. One is an inky black; the others are various shades of an olive-y brown. All are gorgeous and seem happy and healthy.

    Product arrived fast (as promised), and active. No problems with acclimation. Will do business again.

    a great team

    These snails cover more ground and consume more algae than any other Nerites I've had. They move like little roombas!

    perfect for my Fluval tanks

    Posted by Unknown on 15th Apr 2014

    i have two fluval tanks that get LOTS of sunlight. both tanks house a single Betta. the snails have been terrific. they were lively immediately and settled into their new homes quickly. am so pleased. they are a perfect size and color so as to get along just fine with the bettas. ordering/shipping was easy and exactly as stated, which makes all the difference to me because i travel.

    Neat snails!

    Posted by Krystal Tyler on 1st Mar 2014

    I bought some of these with my shrimp/crab order because I have a high-light aquarium, and my current number of nerite snails is clearly not enough to keep up with the algae. Well, these guys are clearly making a dent, not to mention that a couple of them are HUGE! As one of the other commenters said, they're an olive/brown color rather than black, but I'd read that before I bought them, so I already knew. They're still very pretty and provide some variety compared with my tiger/zebra nerites and pink ramshorns.

    Thanks for all the awesome critters and excellent packing/shipping!

    Great little guys!

    I bought these for my shrimp tank, and as soon as I got them acclimated to my tank they started climbing around exploring and making it their domain. It's cool watching their little mouth work against the glass. I also like the fact that they won't breed in my aquarium.
