    Hey guys,

    I'm new here. I noticed a new snail in my aquarium and I was wondering if this is a Nerite baby or pest?


    Thank you for your time :)

    Well nerites dont reproduce in freshwater, it looks like a pretty ramshorn to me, i love those guys, but to each their own

    its a ramshorn. they don't eat healthy plants. if the leaves are dying or rotting they will eat that part of it.

    I agree with above, it is a ramshorn. They will not eat live plants (though if it is dead/dying then it's fair game). They are considered pests because they can reproduce quickly though.
