Most people don't see snails breeding in their tanks. In fact, they always seem to slowly die off and need replaced after some time.

I've noticed that the snails slowly die off...... I had the kind that can't turn them selves over, and I didn't know it at they died... Do you know if the nerites can turn theirselves over?

I've never had any fall into the sandbed. They stay on the glass in my tank.

I've had nerites breed in my tank, it's been over a year since I added any snails and I have around 15 that are smaller than the ones I put in. Ceriths too.

Cool! I haven't got any Ceriths yet but I might get some of those as we'll. Do they sift the sand?

Saltwater nerites

I'm gonna wait until I go out of town to a local owned and operated aquarium store. I have a petco close by but I don't really like to get my fish from there.
