Nerite snails are a great addition to any planted tank. Nerite snails do not reproduce in freshwater so they will never overpopulate your tank.
All nerite snails are known as one of, if not the most, efficient algae eaters out of all aquarium snails. They really like soft algae, green algae, hair algae, brown algae, and even black beard algae if no other sources of food are available.
Note: Nerite snails eat a lot and poop quite a bit. All snails add too much to the bioload of the aquarium. However, your shrimp will love that! The snails’ poop has bacteria that is good for the digestive system of the shrimp.
Note: It is advisable to cover the tank, because these snails can escape from open top tanks.
Interesting fact: snails can be awake for 30+ hours with clusters of around seven bouts of sleeping over a 13-15 hour period.
