Stocking nerite snails


In about a week or two I will be buying some nerite snails. I was wondering how many I should get for a 30 gallon high tank. Would two be a good number or would three be better? I have read that they will lay quite a few eggs over time. I have six cory catfish, will they eat the eggs?


Nerite snails will lay eggs in fresh water but the eggs will not hatch as they cannot survive.

I would go with the three for the tank personally.


Great thanks. I think I will end up doing three and supplementing their diet with veggies once most of the algae is gone.


I have 3 in my 55g. I have never seen eggs.
