Hi

Ive just ordered 4 number Zebra Nerite snails to clean some algae off the back of my glass in my freshwater aquarium, would I be correct in that once they have done that job I could drop a couple into my saltwater aquarium?

Just had a Google think you can but will need to acclimatise to saltwater I would think.
Also read that they need saltwater to reproduce.

If it's a striped nerite I think they will go in brackish water but not sure on full saltwater.
