Will Nerite snails lay eggs in freshwater?

Asked by Lydia Roth

Nerite snails are quite adaptive, as they can live and lay eggs in both saline and fresh water. … Occasionally though, the eggs may hatch in freshwater, but the larvae won’t survive. A female Nerite snail will keep laying eggs in a freshwater aquarium and they will, in most cases, remain unhatched.
