Nerites

Hi, thanks for the reply. I'll take two nerite snails. It is for a 20G High, do you think 2 will be enough?

Shipping is to 33186.

general rule I have read soo often is 2 for every 5 gallons but I generally disagree and say one per 5 gallons .. I say generally because IF you have a BAD algae problem already, 2 for 5 gallons will correct the problem at a decent rate but one per 5 gallons will maintain and slowly decrease the issue.
my internet is slow so I will PM you on postage as soon as I can get it to come up..lol

i just want to chime in and agree 1 for every 5 gallons is plenty. they are little algae eating machines.

thanks for the agreement jem.. I have seen the 2 for 5 gals often but most often on e-commerce sites and I sometimes wonder if it is just a way to sell more.. lol
