Horn Nerite Snails have shells with a beautiful black and yellow spiral pattern and a gleaming, glossy finish. These lovely little snails are great for adding some shine and sophistication to your aquarium, but they also serve some very useful purposes. They clean algae off of glass, plants, and decorations, they eat hair algae, and they keep your substrate clean and the correct colour. And are widely believed to be the single best snail in the aquarium hobby for eating algae. They are totally safe with any fish, shrimp, or plants, and are completely peaceful.
