I caught your post about what a stickler you are for facts and spelling, so I would point out that I believe you are talking about Nerite
and not Nirite
Anyway I've never heard of a specific sub-species with a predisposition for climbing out of an aquarium. Could you post a link please? I guess mine must be one of the several other sub-species not genetically mutated to climb out of the aquarium also.
