I tried nerites with mbuna, haps and peacocks and Tanganyikans. They did the best with Tanganyikans.

I did have one batch that kept escaping the tank. I've heard sometimes they are not acclimated long enough by the vendor...they live in brackish water in nature and may be uncomfortable in our freshwater tanks.

I have had other batches that never escaped or even hung out under the surface. I attributed this to animals that were fully acclimated to freshwater.

Do not release in the wild. Return them to the vendor, or sell them at a fish auction at a local club.
