If you're just looking to use them to eat up algae, 1 will be plenty enough. If you want them just to have them, then you can get as many as you please. It doesn't matter how many.

So a guy walks into a Pet Store

Guy: "I have Algae on my drift wood!"

Pet Clerk: "Take two Plecos and call me next week."

What type of nerites? I've got two horned nerites in a 2 gal. I try to feed them enough though.

Horned nerites are significantly smaller than normal nerites I hear.

1 for each gallon. I like seeing them crawling all over my glass, plants, driftwood, soil. It's a peace of mind to know they are constantly working in a large crew. =)

Btw are we talking about normal Nirite or Horned Nirite (cause they're 4 times smaller than the normal one)

Olive and horned nerites are smaller but they're still workhorses. Get as many as you want
