Breeding nerites

Hello all,

I am interested in potentially breeding nerite snails. I was wondering if anyone has some experience with it and would be willing to offer any advice. I have done some research on the subject and have found some information but not a ton.

Thanks !

nerites are supposed to be notoriously hard to breed, like amano shrimp. they will lay eggs in freshwater but they never hatch. from what ive heard they breed in saltwater normally then migrate into freshwater. im no expert on the subject by any means, this is just what i have read online. i was interested in doing the same for awhile but it just seems like to much of a hassle.

Nerites need...

1. separate tank... Nano would be fine
2. crushed coral
3. Brackish water 1.005- 1.008
4. Warm Temp... 78-79
5. Lots of food and algae

The fastest way to success is patience.

Best,

Joe
