Will either the ramshorns or the nerites eat fish eggs or fry if there are any in the tank? I know it's unreasonable to ask for a snail that doesn't eat plants or fish eggs, but hey, you never know

I had Danio choprae spawning in a tank with nerites. I never did anything to encourage them, but the population still grew.

I know, anecdotal at best.

I know this thread is old, but I just came across it now. I thought I'd post this pic of a nerite snail going to town on some seriously bad green spot algae. The tank was a 10 gallon and the walls were clean within a week's time.

I've gotten hundreds of olive nerities snails from AZgardens, some were FUBRed(<10% of total shipment) but those were usually included in the extras so it wasn't so bad. Out of the last 300 snails, I lost a total of 6 snails.
From my experience, they are good peeps

I know this reply is years late but in case any one reads it: This company you refer to is terrible (az gardens). For more than $80 i received everything except a few tiny snails dead. The plant i bought from them was full of undesired pest snails which i now can't control. They give no guarantee, will sometimes give store credit but then you have to pay the $34 shipping again - really not worth it!
