These King Koopa Nerite Snails (Neritina Juttingae) have short distinct horns on their shell and are great Algae eaters. They also go by Fruit Nerite Snails and are an uncommon Nerite species in the hobby. They eat algae on aquarium walls, plants and substrate. These snails are also peaceful creatures and will not bother other tank inhabitants. We sell our snails at around 1/2 inch in diameter.
Nerite snails will not breed in your tank unlike other snails as brackish water is required for their eggs to hatch. Hence, they will not take over an aquarium unlike other pest snails.
We feed them a combination of our own foods Shrimpy Party, protein party, blanched vegetables (Spinach and Zucchini) and Mulberry leaves.
Recommended Tank Parameters:
