  • Nerite snails

    Does anybody have a source for Nerite snails, other than Arizona Gardens?

    thanks,

    The best places to buy plants, etc. is from other aquatic gardeners, for example at:
    The Planted Tank Forum or at:
    Aquatic Plant Central- aquascaping...a living art
    You can "advertise" for Nerite snails there, and if anyone has any for sale you will almost always get a good price and good quality, with low cost shipping.

      The Olives are all over, Aquatic plant Depot sells them.
      I found them in Florida in the very softwater systems, 50 miles from Brackish water.

        Hi Tom,

        I tried Aquatic Plant Depot first, but their web site is gone, so I assume they're out of the biz. Any other sources?

        thanks,

        Russ

          Not really, I was not impressed by the snails personally, I had 200 of them also.

          Some folks make claims, I'd try and get the African zerba shell types personally if you can.
          The same genus name confused some folks into beliving these are the same.

            You may check to see if Wilma has them. I can't remember her link, but someone should chime in.

              I got mine directly from the rivers in both coasts of Mexico, I have about 200 in my 565 gal aquarium, I think they are an excellent algae control,
