Don’t let the Cerith Snail’s small adult size fool you. As well as having a gorgeous, elongated spiral shell, this active scavenger can consume large amounts of detritus, uneaten food, fish waste, and algae. Plus, this species of the Cerithium genus often burrows in your aquarium sand and helps maintain adequate oxygen levels in the substrate.Native to the Caribbean and Eastern Pacific off the coast of Mexico, the Cerith Snail does best in larger, well-established reef systems with deep sand beds. This voracious feeder is most active at night. In fact, breeding pairs of Cerith Snails will lay their eggs on your aquarium glass just after dark in long, stringy curves. However, since these eggs take a while to develop, they are often consumed by other tankmates or removed from the water column by filtration before the eggs have a chance to hatch. The Cerith Snail is extremely difficult to breed in captivity. Not only is determining the sexes difficult, but the water parameters required to do so are unknown.

Like other invertebrates, the Cerith Snail is sensitive to high nitrate levels and copper based medications. It also requires a gradual acclimation process, preferably the drip acclimation method, since it is sensitive to even minute changes in water parameters.

NERITE SNAIL

These Nerite Snails are for saltwater aquariums only. They will not survive in freshwater aquariums.
 
 
 
Mix and Match to save! Quantity discount applies to all eligible saltwater hermit crabs and snails on your order.
 
These Nerite Snails are collected from the Caribbean Sea in the western Atlantic Ocean and may include the Bleeding Tooth Nerite (Nerita peloronta), the Checkered Nerite (N. tessellata) and others. 
 
Nerite Snails (Nerita sp.) have smooth, round shells that are variable in color and patterns. These small snails are hardy algae eaters and are safe in reef aquariums. They will feed on filamentous algae, cyanobacteria and diatoms. Most Nerite Snails stay fairly small and rarely grow to above 1.5 inches in length. 
 
Some species of Nerite Snails are from tidepool environments and may crawl above the water level; a lid on the tank is recommended. While some Nerite Snails are from freshwater or brackish water environments, those sold here are purely marine snails and cannot be kept in freshwater aquariums.
