I just brought home 2 zebra nerites and noticed that one is missing the apex of his shell. They probably won’t grow much larger. Is it problematic?

It shouldnt be a problem so long as you cant see his foot. A lot of it also has to do with how quickly they grew when they were young

As long as there isn't a hole in the shell, I wouldn't worry about it.

I have a tiger one just like that, she hasn't seemed bothered by it and I've had her a few months. It does look like it broke off of mine, as it's just a white circle area. If it's discolored like mine, it probably won't regain the color, but if it's not open or anything it should be fine.
