Zebra Nerites snails' shells have a truly striking and beautiful pattern, featuring gold and black zebra-like stripes running all the way down.  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 reach around 2-2.5cm (1-1.5 cm at sale) They do not eat plants (only algae), so they are perfectly suitable for planted tanks.

  • pH level range: 6.5 - 8.5
