Don't forget these...

  1. Tank Size: Horned Nerite Snails are small and suitable for tanks of various sizes. A single snail can thrive in a 5-gallon tank or larger.

  2. Water Parameters: Maintain stable conditions with a temperature range of 72-78°F (22-26°C), a pH level around 7.0, and moderately hard water. Stability is essential.

  3. Filtration: Use gentle filtration to ensure good water quality and oxygenation without creating strong currents. Nerite snails are sensitive to excessive water flow.

  4. Aquascape: Provide a well-aquascaped tank with smooth, flat surfaces and hiding spots like rocks and driftwood. Nerite snails are excellent algae eaters and need surfaces to graze on.

  5. Tank Mates: They are peaceful and compatible with most freshwater aquarium inhabitants. Avoid aggressive or predatory species that might harm them.

  6. Diet: Horned Nerite Snails primarily feed on algae and biofilm. Ensure that your tank has sufficient algae growth to sustain them. If algae is scarce, you can supplement their diet with algae wafers or blanched vegetables.
