    Does anybody have a source for Nerite snails, other than Arizona Gardens?

    thanks,

    Russ

    The Olives are all over, Aquatic plant Depot sells them.
    I found them in Florida in the very softwater systems, 50 miles from Brackish water.

    Aquatic Plant Depot - out of business?

    Hi Tom,

    I tried Aquatic Plant Depot first, but their web site is gone, so I assume they're out of the biz. Any other sources?

    thanks,

    Russ

    Not really, I was not impressed by the snails personally, I had 200 of them also.

    Some folks make claims, I'd try and get the African zerba shell types personally if you can.
    The same genus name confused some folks into beliving these are the same.

    Regards,

    You may check to see if Wilma has them. I can't remember her link, but someone should chime in.

    I got mine directly from the rivers in both coasts of Mexico, I have about 200 in my 565 gal aquarium, I think they are an excellent algae control,
    thanks,
