The Nerite Snail has a very decorative shell and is a great addition to your cleanup crew. The Nerite Snail is ideal because they do not grow very large, are excellent scavengers, and do not knock rocks or coral over. These little guys are known for eating a wide variety of food including film algae and cyanobacteria. They will not eat corals and other inverts which makes the Nerite Snail a great addition to the reef aquarium. This is a very durable snail, but like most snails, they don't have a very long lifespan, so expect to replace them a couple of times a year. If you have large triggers, wrasses, or puffers in your aquarium, you will need to replace them more often. Once they clean up the tank, their diet can be supplemented with dried algae.

ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.
