    Nerite snails in natural habitat

    So I traveled back to my hometown in Vietnam recently and while I was going out fishing, I found the natural habitat of nerite snails. It is brackish water. Very interesting to see these little guys in the nature. Please checkout the video here.

    That's super cool! That's why I recently favor the Biotope aquarium because the inhabitants display more natural behaviors. Thanks for the video.

    Wow that is awesome! Nerite snails imo are the most useful algae eater.

    I like them too, except for their never-hatch eggs. They are so hard to get rid of. I tried brushing them off driftwood and glass, but no help at all.

    I was going to but some at CK Fishworld this weekend. They live so far away to be sold in the US.

    The majority of items in the US aquarium trade are imported from other countries all over the world.

    We are paying premium price for everything sold in the US. I used to go out catch wild betta in the rice field and bring home as many as I wanted, But now, they are really pricey.
