    Hello TFF people! :hi:

    I have a question, “Is it normal, for a Zebra Nerite snail to go out of the water?” I have had this snail for over 2 weeks, and it has never done this before. Here is a picture of said snail.

    The snail is not all the way about of the water, it is just making me worry! (Nervous fish Dad! :D)

    Thank you for your time. :thanks:

    Yes, nerite snails do go out of the water sometimes. Just make sure your lid is secure so he can't get out.

    I agree with fish fanatic77. Nerite snails are escape artists.

    I don't think its because they just want to.My zebra nerites only go when there is less algae.
    do you have less algae in your tank?

    I have a lot of algae, mostly on the back, and the sides of the tank. If you go to the TOTM contest, you can see my tank, and it’s algae. :)
