    Red Racer Nerite Snail & Marbled Limpet Nerite Snail questions...

    Red Racer Nerite Snail & Marbled Limpet Nerite Snail questions...

    Anyone here has these two types of nerite snails in their tank?
    If so, would you mind sharing your experience? Example how easy are they to keep compared to the other nerite (zebra, horned, tiger). Are they any good at eating algae? Are they sensitive to CO2?

    Aquatic Arts has them on their site right now on "sale". Not really a sale if you include cost of shipping. Aquarium Creation, SCAPE vendor, had the Red Racer Nerite a few months back on pre-order cheaper.

    They look interesting but so expensive.

    Thanks!

    Hey Khai, I am kinda interested in these snails too because they look so cool. I also would like to know about people's experience.

    Combined shipping group buy anyone? JK. It's a lot of work for group buys.

    Most nerites are from my experience. I have found mines across the room from their tank. I can't even tell how long it has been there but I just put them right back in and usually within a few minutes they start moving again.

    I have the limpet nerites from aquatic arts. They spend the majority of the time on the glass and do t really explore the tank or hardscape. Pretty easy to care for and us pretty much exactly like other nerites. They're also great if you have fish that like to garras your snails since they're really well protected under their shell. Predators can't really get to them. Mine have never tried to escape and always stay below the water line.

    CK Fishworld usually has a selection of nerites, not just horned ones.

    This is what i get when trying to look at your pictures. You can direct upload them to scape, or you need to change your settings in google.
