    I've always heard a zebra can't change its stripes, but apparently zebra nerites can!

    I picked up four a while back and one of them seems to have decided to go with a different look. The other three had no or very minimal change. This guy went drastic! And they all came from the same shipment and same lfs at the same time. All have been in the same tank since.

    Any ideas what caused this? The little gray curved vertical line is one of the antenna I couldn't get a pic without one of them floating through lol [​IMG]

    A few years ago I was given some very small wild Nerites and as they aged one developed a large white spot on its shell. The others their colours became stronger all this could have happened as they aged plus the conditions they lived it.
