One of my olive nerites rides on the shell of the other one about 80% of the time. I don't even know when it actually eats. haha.
They can only breed in brackish water, but they will lay eggs in fresh water- they just won't hatch.
Thanks for that.
I've had them in the tank for around 2 weeks now and I find them more entertaining than the fish! The tanks not been this clean since I bought it.
Gutted, I wish mine would hitch a ride, that would make a good photo :)
