So I finally gave in and bought a few horned nerites. I do weekly 5% water changes.
Water is now
0 Ammonia
~0 Nitrate
pH of ~7.2-7.4
gH of 9

My nerites are curled up inside their shells and won't move. Is my gH too low or something? They're in with neocaridina and I was hoping to add some tangerine tigers later, but if the gH goes up anymore to accommodate the snails I worry about my shrimp, and probably won't be able to get tigers either.

The gH is fine for nerites. Is there anything trying to eat them? It took my 3 several weeks before they were on the go regularly.

I keep nerites with tangerine tigers and snowball shrimp. GH is around 5 and the nerites do well.
