The Three-Color Thorn/Horned Nerite Snail (Clithon corona/diadema) is an increasingly popular nerite snail that is native to East and Southeast Asia. This peaceful snail has a highly variable range of colors and patterns on its shell and is a very attractive and useful algae-eating scavenger that is great for the nano or planted aquarium.


The Horned Nerite Snail is slightly smaller than a standard Nerite Snail, and only reaches about 1/2-1 inch once fully grown. It is a scavenger that feeds continually and requires very little feeding in a well-established aquarium containing algae, biofilm, or decaying plant matter. We also recommend feeding them algae wafers, boiled vegetables or snello.


NOTE: The color of the snail will be given at random, and can range from red to yellow to brown. Some of the snails given may be juvenilles.
