How many Nerite Snails can I have with current ones?


I want a couple nerites. I was scared away from them but I really need some good algae eaters. I have 6-7 mystery snails right now in a 40g.

Or would I better off with otos? I love my snails. What scared me was all of the eggs.

I feed my snails snail jello so I wouldn't have an issue of them going hungry and it won't mess with my bioload. Also some amanos. Want some of them, at least 10.

I have 2 bamboo shrimp as well.

If you do not want Nerite eggs, then do not get Nerites. Otos are good for algae, or if it is a larger tank, a Bristlenose Pleco is good.

I read that they eventually fall off. I have little white things in my betta tank but I forgot what they are. The eggs might be better than algae.
