  • Nerite Eggs -- Are they doomed?

    I will try posting this here to see if I get any response:

    I have read that it is considered nearly impossible to breed Olive Nerites, and that they only spawn in Brackish to full SW. Also read that the babies like or possibly require Limestone...

    Well mine are laying eggs everywhere... Has anyone ever seen these survive in FW? I have heard rumors only... I was thinking of dropping in some pieces of limestone, and perhaps some salt in my 3g tank...

    mine have done the same ive read about them and can only find they need saltwater to complete their lifecycle.
