Nerite snail has a rounded shell with black or brown coloration. This species of snail does not grow very large so it is perfect for large or small tanks. It is important to provide live rock for the Nerite snail to forage on.
Snails are an essential cleaner. There are many different species and they vary in size and structure. Snails are remarkable scavengers that are constantly removing algae and debris tucked deeply into coral reefs and rock reefs. They do well in any environment and are generally peaceful. Some Snails, however, can be more aggressive, so it is best to allow them plenty of space and extra food when needed.
