| | Re: Where do Nerites Live?
I have one Olive Nerite in my 1G nano
, "Ghost Garden" at work.
When I came in this morning, it was on the floor, I put it back in the tank, even though it was dry. He/she is moving around in the tank.
So apparently, they live out of water. I was always under the impression that they lived in tidal areas where the rivers met oceans. Would make sense that they can stay alive out of water for extended periods of time. Not sure where I got this impression from, maybe I read it somewhere, not sure. (Take with grain of salt)
