Product spotlight: Clithon diadema

Clithon diadema

Common names: Spiky nerite, bumble bee nerite

Distribution: Indonesia, Philipines

Size: to ~1" diameter

pH/hardness- Harder water is ideal to preserve shell integrity

Suitable tankmates- any non-snail eating species; peaceful fish/invertebrates

Tank setup/stocking density- 1 per 5-10 gallons of tank space. Great in planted tanks. Mature tank is a necessity so they don't starve.

Breeding: Lays sesame seed shaped eggs which do NOT develop into snails.

Diet: Algae (sheet, spot types); can occasionally be supplemented with blanched vegetables or vegetable pellets

Behavior: Totally peaceful staying on glass or hardscape, grazing on algae and biofilm

Anecdotal: These are often called clithon corona as well, classification has been confusing.
