What Can My Nerite Snail Eat??

SushiLovesYou

Hi. I recently got a Tiger Nerite Snail and I'm not sure what to feed him.. He's not interested in Algae Wafers or Carrots.. Anything else? Is there a way I have to prepare it? It's my first snail and I really want him to survive! Thanks!

Also: Do Nerite Snails eat marimo balls? I see those everywhere and if they do it would be easy food. Thankyou!

They eat algae so they might eat that from your tank if you have any... Also how long did you leave the food in there for?

If your tank is a new set up without algae, try some sinking pellets.

Mine eat ZucchinI ( raw ) Broccoli, Yellow squash, MinI pumpkins. I think they will probably eat most any veggie I put in there. They have quite an appetite.

Bayster70 - like 30 minutes. I put some more and ill leave it in there longer.

I would leave it over night and see if any of it has been eaten

He took those carrots to town!!! I first I thought he just left them. But I looked closer and there was a carrot under him!

Mine loves to clean up my driftwood. They also love the phytoplankton that builds up on the sides of a glass naturally.
