These attractive snails definitely draw your eyes directly to them, but they also serve some very useful purposes, as all nerite snails do. They clean algae off of glass, plants, and decorations, they eat hair algae, and they keep your substrate clean and the correct color.

Nerite snails are widely believed to be the single best snail in the aquarium hobby for eating algae. They are totally safe with any fish, shrimp, or plants, and are completely peaceful. Nerite snails require salt water to reproduce, so they will never overpopulate your aquarium (as some freshwater snails are known to do).

Zebra nerite snails range from 1/2 to 1 inch in diameter. They usually will remain around 1 inch throughout their lifespan, but the occasional snail will reach 1 1/2 inches! They do not eat plants (only algae), so they are perfectly suitable for planted tanks.

RECOMMENDED TANK PARAMETERS:
- PH level range: 6.5 to 8.5
- Temperature range: 65 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit
- Water type: Medium hard
- Recommended Aquatic Arts tank mates: Other types of snails (other Nerite snails, Mystery Snails, Sulawesi Snails, etc.), dwarf shrimp (such as Blue Velvet shrimp, Sakura Fire Red Cherry Shrimp, Neon Yellow Shrimp, etc.). They can also be kept with small to medium-sized, non-aggressive fish.
- Additional notes: With all nerite snails, it's a good idea to make sure the water line in your aquarium isn't too high, as these snails tend to climb up beyond the water line. Nerite snails do not tolerate water with high nitrate levels. Snails are very sensitive to copper, so watch out for copper if you use tap water in your tank.

  • These snails' shells have a truly striking and beautiful pattern - they have gold and black zebra-like stripes running all the way down.

  • These are Nerite Snails, so they absolutely never reproduce in freshwater - great for aquarium hobbyists who don't want snails reproducing in their tanks!

  • Totally peaceful and safe for live plants, live shrimp, and live fish.

  • Nerite Snails are widely known as one of, if not the most, voracious algae-eaters out of any snail.

  • All Aquatic ArtsTM (formerly InvertObsessionTM) brand plants and animals come with a 100% live arrival guarantee, plus free email support directly from the owners!
