These snails are young and around pea size. Two colored, black and yellow.
The Horned Nerite Snail is named for its horn-like appendages on its shell. The shell of the Horned Nerite Snail is very sturdy, with the horns providing them a defense mechanism against fish trying to eat them or even human beings during handling. It is an extremely docile creature and does not bother any other inhabitants.
They clean algae off of glass, plants, and decorations, they eat hair algae, and they keep your substrate clean and the correct color.
Nerite Snails are widely believed to be the single best snail in the aquarium hobby for eating algae. They are totally safe with any fish, shrimp, or plants, and are completely peaceful. Nerite Snails require salt water to reproduce, so they will never overpopulate your aquarium (as some freshwater snails are known to do). They are also peaceful and safe with live plants, fish, and shrimp, making them great for community tanks.
These Nerite Snails reach around 1-1.2cm. They do not eat plants (only algae), so they are perfectly suitable for planted tanks.

Very cute and pretty snails. Absolutely awesome algae eaters, voracious. Have doubled in size in few weeks. Less messy than ramshorn snails.
Probably require algae in tank to survive, if enough algae and reasonable water quality have experienced no escapees. If escaping examine the conditions in the tank, they are telling you something is not right. Do not overstock, stick with recommendations, they will otherwise starve and you do not require many.
