Nerite Snail

Nerite snail scraping GSA on the rock

Another shot

Bought 2 to test their efficiency in scraping off some of the algae on the rocks. So far I am very satisfy with their ability to remove GSA on the rocks. I got to say that they are among the best algae eater I have in the tank. You will be able to see clean "path" on the rocks as they move.

The only drawback by having them is that they will lay eggs on the rock and it is hard to be removed. However, plus point is that Nerite eggs are unable to hatch in freshwater. I have enough of Ramshorn Snail infestation which require manual removal everyday to control their population in the tank.
