The zebra snail, or zebra nerite snail, is a scavanger and algae eater and, like all nerites, plant safe. Nerite snails do not overrun the fish tank and only grow to about one inch at full maturity. Nerites do well in most water conditions except for PH below 7.0.
These attractive snails do not get bigger than an inch and we recommend several for algae control in larger tanks.
