    nerites

    they will breed in freshwater, not just saltwater, but they need saltwater for the eggs to hatch into a larval stage, then gradually reducing the saltilinity (sp) as they mature. its like a tidal thing. working off Apple snails 2gal per adult. not sure with the Nerites, but i cant see there...

    Hot tap water, deadly to shrimp?
