They are relatively easy to care for and require a similar environment to most freshwater snails. They prefer a tank with plenty of rocks, plants, and hiding spots, and good filtration and aeration. Nerite snails require calcium for shell growth, so adding calcium supplements to the tank can help ensure healthy shells.
