    In order to reproduce, the Horned Nerite Snail requires brackish water.
    can we breed it with the mix of Saltwater and freshwater?

    I think it would easily breed if given the right environment

    Probably can, even in fresh water it always produce egg although it does not hatch.

    I already have it in my aquarium, and always produce egg and never hatch.
    so often....that's makes me curious.
    maybe there's someone have succeeded to hatch it in DIY environment (mix of freshwater and saltwater),percentage based on water salinity?

    The snail in the picture is actually Clithon corona. They are not nerites but are near relative. I have never read anybody succeed in breeding either Nerites or Clithons. In my case, I'm just blessed to pick them up in the wild. :)
