Our Cerith snails are collected off the west coast of Florida. They are found on muddy grass beds where they help to keep slime and nuisance algae off of the sea grasses. They will spend time on your substrate nibbling on detritus, or they will be found crawling up the glass or plants and rocks searching for algae. It is reported that they will consume diatoms. It takes quite a few of them to put a dent in rapidly growing algae outbreaks. They make excellent nano inhabitants.

Virgin Nerite Snails
These beautiful little snails are great algae eaters. We watch them eat slime algae off rocks in the wild and off of our glass in captivity. They are true marine nerites. These snails do not get very big; about the size of a woman's thumbnail. We have found at least 6 different beautiful shell designs and personally collect them in the Florida Keys. They have been known to reproduce in captivity. The Virgin Nerites are native to the Bahamas. We have tapped into one of the only known areas in the U.S. where these snails reside. The story has it, from the source, that Julian Sprung had collected several of these unique snails on a trip to the Bahamas and released them in Florida. They are doing quite well in their new, transplanted home. THEY WILL NOT CLIMB OUT OF YOUR TANK!!
