Pics of juvenile nerites?

Postby kbb0118 » Sun Oct 09, 2011 10:11 pm

In a tank of my fish breeding system there are a 2 nerites....and a few hundred of these little guys. No other fishes. I have spied what are definitely nerite eggs, but I never did anything to try to raise the larvae. Are these nerites or some kind of hitchiker? I may have a star astrea in another tank of the same system (they share a sump).

these are on airline tubing to give you some idea of size.

Thanks!

After more digging they resemble collinista snails to me. I may just have to wait a 6 months or so and see what they are.
