River Nerite - Theodoxus fluviatilis
I've been looking into Nerite snails as I have some recurring green spot algae issues but the ones I can find in the UK are seriously expensive. I have however found a River Nerite which I could probably find in my local river (fast flowing high calcium river) which suits their habitat. According to what I have read these nerites do not need brackish water to breed and eat green spot algae. Can anyone see any problems if I caught one and put it in my tank?
