Some dude on UKAPS just posted it in a journal update with no caption whatsoever or anything. I'm thinking some var of nerite?

I have to have one they're just so cool, if anyone knows information about them it would be greatly appreciated!

Horned Bumblebee Nerite.

A color variant of Horned Nerites.

I have to admit to only seeing them on the screen. I've yet to see them in person. Hopefully someone will chime in here with a source.

Care requirements and characteristics are the same as any species of Nerites; just a really cool color combo.

Thanks for the response! These are unreal, I've got to have a couple. I'm sure they're rare and I too hope someone with some more information will contribute!

I have two like that, but on mine the stripes are dark brown. Horned nerites. I've also seen them called Sun Thorn nerites on another site, not sure if that is really another common name for them. I got mine from Petsmart and Petco, locally. They're not as common in the store as the zebra and tomato nerites, so I keep my eye out for them because I want more!

I really like these guys. Have a couple myself. They are smaller than regular nerites, and their eggs dissolve much quicker than regular nerite eggs, so your tank won't be covered by them. Only takes a couple weeks in my tank.
