Re: nerite breeding tank #2
I looked at this once (since I have so much success with MTS and have plenty of nerite eggs ) - summary of what I found was not very specific:

- Breed them in a brackish tank, temp set at 79F, with a lower level of illumination
- Moving the eggs to a smaller hatching tank are an option, but not necessary
- Once the eggs hatch, move them to a marine tank, or other fully salty tank.
- Once the hatchlings become little snails, move them back to the brackish tank, you can keep them there to rebreed, or move them to a freshwater tank to solve algae problems.

How hard is your water?
