Horned nerite snail vs Standard nerite snail?

Is there a size difference between these two? I assumed horned nerites were pretty much the same as standard nerites, but the 3 horned nerites I have are growing at a much slower pace than my other nerites.

Good to know! How large are your horned?

About half the size. I have 3 horned and they are all smaller.

Thank you! That's good news, I was worried I was underfeeding or not providing enough calcium or something.

Mine never eat anything I've put in. Calcium I haven't had to worry about because my water is harder than most.

Oh mine never go after food either haha, but I use almond leaves in the aquarium which they happily munch on. My water is quite hard as well, but I still supplement calcium because they seem to enjoy it and the shells on my ramshorns look nicer.
