These Nerite Snails can reach around 1-1.2cm. They do not eat plants (only algae), so they are perfectly suitable for planted tanks.
 
Nerite Snails are widely believed to be the single best snail in the aquarium hobby for eating algae. They are totally safe with any fish, shrimp, or plants, and are completely peaceful. Nerite Snails require salt water to reproduce, so they will never overpopulate your aquarium (as some freshwater snails are known to do). They can still lay eggs in freshwater however clithon snails are known to be less liekly to lay as many, or are much smaller.
