Hello everyone,
I was at PetSmart yesterday because I ran out of food for my Zebra Danios. I decided to go check out the fish and I saw a nerite snail in one of the cichlid tanks. It's only pea-sized and they weren't selling it so they gave it to me for free. It has been doing a great job of cleaning the algae of the walls of my tank

Nice that they gave it to you. Most of those places would have put a price on the little critter.

Pretty!
Do they have a big bio-load?
Bioload of nerites is negligible, especially if there's enough algae that you don't have to feed them.
