    Nerita,
    Algae eater,
    I got loads of them. Do not grow big either. Move it to where you got algae or dirty glass.

    If you want some more, come around. I seriously got about 20 that needs more space.

    The only problem with them, is that when they do fall of the glass, they tend to fall on their back. And they cannot help themselves up. In the ocean they just wait for the next big wave. what we do not have in our glass boxes.
