Is 1 nerite per gallon a common rule of thumb? Reason i ask is that i've been researching how many to put in my 5 gallon and that would be the most per gallon that i've read so far.Nerite Snails require brackish (salty) water to reproduce. You need about one per gallon and they tend to be expensive.
Ah ok, well the 1 per g for shrimp is useful for me anyway since i'm looking at getting some shrimp in a couple weeks too. :-DOh... good catch. No, I am twelve kinds of wrong there... I had Amano Shrimp on the brain.
I don't remember the exact for Nerites, and don't want to be wrong twice in one thread. Someone will google it. I don't have any myself... soft, acidic Atlanta water dissolves their shells quickly.
How is your tank lit? Algae require a good amount of light to grow.I have a ten gallon tank with one Marigold Wag Swordtail, one Hifin Platy, and two Green Lantern platys. Algae is growing all over the glass, so I want an algae eater. Any suggestions?
