Can nerite snails live in freshwater?
 
I was wondering because I have heard them mentioned as good algae eater, but I thought they were only saltwater . Will they survive in freshwater?

They'll be fine in FW and while they may spawn, the eggs won't hatch unless moved to BW or SW.

Is that true of most SW snails, or just nerite?
