    Hi there,

    I ordered 2 Nerite snails and they have been shipped, so will be with me tomorrow.

    I was wondering whether there was something I needed to watch when adding them to the tank?

    Do they need to float in whatever they come in in the tank for 20 minutes like fish?

    Sorry for a probably silly question.

    There are no silly questions!

    I would treat them as you would fish.

    usually i just pop snails in…they’re hardy buggers,

    and aren’t nerite snails brackish?

    Did you get them from the link someone posted? I thought they were expensive as my lfs only charges £1.99 each.

    I did get them from there, after I failed to find any anywhere else. Been to all the lfs and the not so loval fs too /smile.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:)” border=”0″ alt=”smile.gif” />

    I don’t think they are. Certainly everywhere I looked said about tropical aquaria. Maybe there are brackish ones too?

    I have 4 nerites in my trop tank but they’ll need saltwater if i want them to breed. I haven’t looked into more detail about breeding.

    I knew saltwater was involved somehow…
