    Crazy Nerites

    Any ideas on how to keep nerite snails from performing the great escape? i have to constantly look behind my tank and down in my stand to look for these guys. Besides the obvious closed canopy (i'm building one) or glass tops (dont want em) any thoughts???

    nahh, other than using a lid. there is no other way ..

    nerites carry water in their shells and are adventurous, so they survive with the water in the shell and may be expect to come back before they run out.

    if you have a tank rim and no cords in the tank is the easiest way, on my pico i have a corded pump and they like to climb the cord on out.

    I think they "learn" the size of their tanks in due time. Mine used to escape and I would check everyday. Then fewer would escape and it finally just stopped.
