10 Turbo Snails
The Turbo snail is an excellent choice as a part of your clean up crew - as it will aggressively consume large amounts of nuisance algae. Turbo snails love to hang on the glass and rocks eating many types of algae. They are native to the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico. One major concern with turbo snails is their inability to right themselves if turned over, therefore please do not keep them in an environment with aggressive tank mates who may intentionally flip them over.
Since the turbo snail is a algae eating snail, sufficient algae must be present to properly maintain the animal. Ordering this snail in smaller quantities is advised as supplemental feeding them can prove difficult. Turbo snails can be sensitive to quick changes in salinity and pH, therefore a slow drip acclimation is suggested.
10 Nerite Snails
Our Nerite snails hail from the Caribbean waters and LOVE to eat algae. One of the hardiest snails around - they are worth their weight in gold- making your tank look sparkly new. A beautiful zebra pattern is typical however many variations of that pattern can be seen from browns to yellows. They are small snail that is an easy addition not creating a concern for your rock work.
10 Cerith Snails
This all around fantastic saltwater snail is a favorite among aquarists. Cerith snails eat detritus, fish waste, algae, and uneaten food. Cerith snails will scale the rock work, burrow in the sand bed and make themselves at home in your tank - happily taking care of business.
Cerith snails will often appear dead during the day, as the majority of their activity can be seen after hours. They are native to the Caribbean and are comfortable in very warm tanks since their native home of tidepools can often become very hot.
Cerith snails can be sensitive to quick changes in salinity and pH, therefore a slow drip acclimation is suggested.
10 XLG Cerith Snails
Similar to normal cerith snails - but much larger!!
10 Astrea Snails
The astrea snail requires SLOW drip acclimation and water parameters that are pristine. Even slight traces of nitrates can be harmful to the astrea snail.
50 Nassarius Vibex Snails
The Nassarius Snail has a little body with a big appetite - going around your tank foraging for any decaying waste, leftover food and nasty fish excrement in your tank. The nassarius vibex snail is an efficient scavenger - and will eat detritus. As a basic must have for your clean up crew - nassarius snails eliminate the yuck which causes nitrates which feed algae - aiding in the removal of unwanted algae by preventive maintenance.
The Nassarius Snail has a small shell approximately the size of an olive pit. Nassarius Vibex burrow into the substrate and when a morsel of dinner is available, a long tube like siphon will arise from the substrate to quickly locate it. Pushing through the upper levels of the substrate, nassarius snails help aerate the substrate, preventing compaction.
