anyone know about Nassarious Obsoleta snails?

I bought some on ebay as they are cheap and I am really in need of a larger cleanup crew. Anyone have experience with them or know if they are good for reef setups?

I have some, they spend most of their time cleaning the sand. A nice snail, not the prettiest, but they work hard. Good buy IMO.

Do you mean llynassa obsoleta or however ya spell it? They are not true marine snails and come from cooler mud flats. Not sure how that affects their long term survival in the aquarium.

I'm not sure if they are the same snail or not.. but I still believe they are mud snails.

There should be pics of it here

The only reason I mentioned it is because I've seen those for sale all over ebay for a while, so maybe they decided to call them Nassarius now to make them more appealing.

Ya I got some of the snails your talking about off ebay. The first batch arrived cooked. The second batch they sent to make up for the cooked batch are all alive and well. They pretty much move around everywhere on the sand and glass. Not many of mine ever get on the rocks. HTH!
