Black nerite snails #1
Hi does anyone know where I could get some of these as I can't find them anywhere. I have had two in my goldie tank for 3 years now and they're doing a fantastic job and they look great. I've just set up a tank for my two fancies and Black nerites would look the part. Any help would greatly accepted.

Kesgrave Tropicals on eBay are selling mixed green and black Nerite snails at the moment. He's a very reliable seller with excellent stock so it might be worth asking if he's willing to send you black only.

Ooh not seen pure black ones before. The stealth/batman version of the nerite snail lol

Black substrate, green planting, would look very nice!

Re: Black nerite snails #5
Mine are in with father and son goldies (sadly spawning took too much out of mum and she passed). They are in with dorset pea an are stunning and I've been after more for ages but these aren't horned and the tank is crystal. Tried apples and onion but the don't seem to tolerate the cooler temperature as well.
