That's the only downfall with a nerite snail which I see. I bought one recently for my tank - super hardy and cleans up algae nicely. By hardy I mean it survived a 2 hour long walk at about 50°F in a store-bought bag.Maxwell09 said:The white eggs are annoying
They get pretty big and produce a lot of waste. They are gorgeous and great scavengers, but depending on how many shrimp the OP has in their 7 gallon it may not be for them. If they do want to add one I would only add 1 max. There needs to be a food in their diet with some meat in it and if your water is soft/has low GH you may need to add a calcium supplement for their large shells. But shrimp are inverts too and if they aren't having calcium problems snails will most likely do fine.Animefishes said:Mystery snails will definitely work if you get different breeds, they do get big and might have to much bioload for a 7 gallon though.
Thing is the eggs, that are very hard to get offcarsonsgjs said:I think nerites tick all the boxes that you have set out. No need to worry about sexing as their eggs wont hatch unless they are in salt/brackish water.
I picked up a bunch a few days ago and im really impressed by their cleaning abilities.
Black devils would work in a 7?R3licx said:I have 2 Mystery snails and 2 Black Devil Spike Snails. Id say ether of them would be good for your tank.

Depends how big they are at first. but eventually i would move them to a 10 gallon.Maxwell09 said:Thing is the eggs, that are very hard to get off
