Nerite Snails

Just added added 14 Nerite snails to my 60gal Mbuna tank today. Anyone have experience with these?

I added 1 zebra nerite snail to my tank and it was killed within a few days.

I have 10 tiger nerites, they are great, they eat algae like none other and are tuff as balls. Good addition to your tank for sure.

They may work for awhile but once your fish figure out they're a food source it could very well be a massacre! Great addition to a planted tank...

I tried some nerites in my mbuna tank and they were eaten up quick. It could work for you though, you never know all fish are different.
