What kind of snail is this?

Went to my lfs and they're 1 dollar each. Are they nerite zebras?

I have a couple, and that is what they were called. A note of interest: they won't breed in freshwater.

I knew they couldn't breed in freshwater I was just making sure that's what they were because 1 dollar a piece is a steal. Thanks for the second opinion guys.

Are you going to keep more than one? If you end up with a male and female they will lay eggs (although they won't hatch) and those eggs will NOT come off!
