    I was wondering what your favorite Nerite and Mystery Snail colors/patterns are.

    My favorite nerite was labeled as a Tiger Nerite at Petco. I don't know if that's the right name but he's orange with black spots that spiral around his shell.

    That is considered a Tiger. My favorite Nerite would probably be Zebras. For Mystery Snails, I like Magenta the best, but I wanted to see what others prefer before hopefully buying a few to breed tomorrow.

    :D The zebra is my other favorite. I don't know much about snails... I've only had them a few months but tiger and zebra nerites are the only snails I keep in my freshwater tanks. :) Now, my saltwater snails... they're stressing me out.:rolleyes:

    My favorite Nerite is a Zebra(though the Olive ones are nice looking) and my favorite Mystery is the Golden.

    Favorite nerite is probably tiger. Favorite mystery is purple and blue.

    I intend to begin breeding Mystery Snails! I also plan to eventually breed Nerites.

    That sounds like so much fun. Wish I could breed my mysteries. I just don't have room for who knows how many baby snails.

    I can't be left with more than I am with my betta spawns.

    My favorite Nerites are Horned Nerites. I don't really like Mystery Snails, but I would love a purple one, cause it's purple. :) I do have a Golden right now and so far it can stay. It's doing well in my RCS tank.
    I definitely will be getting a purple Mystery one day.
