Algae Consumers: Spotted Nerite Snails are excellent algae consumers and will actively graze on the unsightly algae growth in your aquarium, including diatoms and soft green algae.
Additional Food: In case of limited algae availability, supplement their diet with algae wafers, blanched vegetables (such as zucchini or spinach), or high-quality sinking pellets. Be sure not to overfeed to maintain water quality.


Water Quality: Regularly monitor water parameters such as ammonia, nitrate, and nitrite levels to maintain optimal water quality. Perform regular water changes to keep the aquarium clean and provide a healthy environment for your snails.
Calcium Supplement: Spotted Nerite Snails require sufficient calcium for shell growth. Provide a calcium source, such as crushed coral or cuttlebone, to ensure their shells remain strong and healthy.
Avoid Copper: Keep in mind that copper-based medications or treatments are toxic to invertebrates, including Spotted Nerite Snails. Use caution when treating your aquarium for any ailments.
