Some Petland Discounts and Petcos carry them.

The grass isn't always greener in the other tank.

I just ordered 5 tiger Nerites from Aquatic Arts. They sent me 6. Pretty happy with them. I will definitely order from them again in future. Really beautiful snails too.

Aquatic arts has a good selection. i recently purchased 4 each with a different type of shell. I am hoping they are different species and won't breed and lay eggs all over the glass. So far after 3 weeks no eggs.

My understanding is that if you have more than 1 they will lay eggs but they won't hatch as they need brackish water to hatch. But I just got mine so we'll see.

I have 8 olive nerites and they lay eggs quite often. It is easy to clean off the glass. Mine have been in the tank for 6 years and they still clean the glass. I would also recommend MTS as they do a great job as well
