Zebra Nerite Snail info

What is the scientific name and natural range of the zebra nerite snail?

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

They are called Neritina natalensis. Do bear in mind nerites absorb a lot of calcium so you need to supplement them with calcium or risk letting them suffer shell erosion which if become more severe, the shells may need drastic measures to have them fixed. MTS are similarly great calcium absorbers as well.

Here's your reference.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
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.

I looked at the source you put before I got them. Its just that aquabby.com says their natural range is in South and Central America.
