Wanted Wanted Nerite Snail

I'm looking for 2-3 Nerite Snails in Mississauga to help with algae control in my planted 29g. Got 3 from BAs last week when they were on sale but 2 turned into empty shells overnight.

(I can trade few Assassin Snails for them too)

I find otos do a much better job.

I have 8-14 otos in the tank. Just wanted something to take care of the glass. My otos rarely hang on the tank, I only se them munching the algae of the plants.

In terms of bioload and efficiency of cleaning for his purpose, Nerite snails are hands down the best. I wish I took a before and after pic of my glass.

Only downside are the eggs they lay (which wont actually hatch).

I got the vampire and Peru sp. orange otos from the Menagerie. They've completely cleaned the glass in a 10gal in a week. You could barely see in the tank before. I wish I had taken a pic.
