Years of experience/online research/talking with fellow hobbiest. Less can do a good job, but 1 per gallon is a good benchmark IF you are attempting complete algae control using only nerites.

As I mentioned, I recommend a good mix. A 45g tank with 45 nerites would really look pretty crazy, unless you just really love snails.
