The Nerite Snail ( Neritina natalensis ) is very colourful and easy to keep, they are peaceful in temperament and make a great algae cleaner to any aquarium. Nerites originate from brackish waters in eastern Africa, this is where fresh water meets salt water. These snails have adapted to live in fresh water and can also be kept in brackish if you wish to breed them. They range in size from 2 – 4cm and come in a variety of patterns and colours. The Nerites which are in our mixed packs are as follows....
The Batik Nerite has a scattered pattern, Some are dotted, striped and zigzagged. They have black and orange coloration, some with hues of yellow.
