I just put it in and the nerites climb the sides to get to it, then once there are a ton, it sinks to the bottom. I thought about putting a stone on one end, but just don't ever feel like sticking my arm all the way to the pit in the water.

I just always peeled the skin because of the chance of pesticides I missed in the rinsing. Probably a bit ridiculous I guess. Wouldn't be muah otherwise
