Talking Horned Nerite Snails (Clithon corona) update

Finally...after a couple of months trying to supplement them with anything else, I saw three munching happily on a cucumber slice with some of my Pomacea diffusa. I had to distract the diffusas by pouring some shrimp pellets and toss in a plaster of Paris puck. Just thought I'd let everyone know it doesn't hurt to keep trying even when they refuse a certain food initially.

All nerites don't. As far as I know, only the canas and those of cana complex including insularums are recorded to eat live fish. I don't know about the Salton sea snails, possibly they do as they're related to the canas but they're apparently tamer.

They can thrive in freshwater except the eggs laid will never hatch.
