Will my new stow away Nerite snails (i think) eat my anacharis?

I got some anacharis from Petco and looks like they included some free snails without my knowledge. Will they eat the anacharis?

If they're Nerites, they won't eat you plants if they can get algae--fresh it in wafer form. Blanched carrots and zucchini go over well. Nice stowaways

Petco does not give away snails.. Im betting you have those nasty little black snails that will take over your tank. You may want to to get rid of them asap or at least post pics so others can id them..

I agree that it's pretty unlikely that you actually have nerite snails. Much more likely to be pond/bladder snails (which may or may not damage plants).

If you did somehow manage to get nerites no need to worry as they're plant safe.
