Another Olive Nerite question

I am getting some olive nerites. Think they will be here tomorrow. I would like to put them in my recently cycled 5gal for quarantine. (lots of green in there for them to eat) The heater in the tank only heats the water to 74 deg. Is this warm enough? What temperatures are best for nerites?

I think it should be a few degrees warmer. Invertabrates are more sensitive to temperature than fish.

Everything happens for a reason, but the reason isn't always good.

It is fine. 72-84 degrees is appropriate for nerites.

I'm ready for the pressure.

I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
