The first one is a fav. from me too. In Germany they are imported as Neritina "Orange Track". Like other neritinas they won´t breed in freshwater.

Ohhhh, they're beautiful! I too like the orange/red one with the dots - what an amazing color on a snail!

Nerites are great, and the fact that they come in such great colors (polka dot, zebra) and the one with the "spikes" is an added bonus. I hope they do well for you. I wish they were available here.

Thanks for posting the picts!

Jane,
There are sources for nerites in the US. My lfs has four different kinds, plus the ones with spikes (calling them crown of thorns - appropriate for today ;) ).

There are even native nerites in the US - just ask some of the folks in Florida and Georgia!

Do they also lay eggs all over the tank but as usual the eggs dont hatch ?

Quite an eyesore to see white eggs around the tank's glass

Oh, this is not usual in my neritines, neither in my Clinthon snails.

If only the Neritina sp. "Polka Dot" is available in Singapore......"drooling"
Are they sensitive to water condition??
