Golden Apple Snail tankmate with Zebra Nerite Snail?
 
Thinking of getting a zebra nerite snail, any reason why they can't co-exist with apple snails?

I have mine together in freshwater and they get along just fine. I don't believe any apples can be in salt at all so if you were planning on breeding your nerites they do need to either be in brackish or saltwater.

No no i don't desire to breed the zebra, thanks!

The combo is fine. Apple snails will rarely ever eat the algae that nerites relish so there is really no competition issues between them.
