Mexico Coraline Margarita snail, commonly known as Pearl snail features a brown body with smooth, turban-shaped shell, which gives it an extraordinary look. The shells are covered with coaline algae for a beautiful appearance and can act at a catalyst for coralline growth in your tank. Mexico Coraline Margarita snail possesses a highly peaceful nature and should not be housed with aggressive species. The Coraline Margarita snail can grow up to a size of 1 inch and should not be housed in a tank of less than 24 galllons. Make sure to add plenty of rocks in the aquarium where it can hide or graze when required or stressed. Be cautious while keeping the Mexico Coralline Margarita snail in a reef tank as it may nip on small crustaceans but not on other inhabitants and the corals present. It is best to keep it in a temperature range of 72-78ø F, pH 8.1-8.4, and specific gravity ranging from 1.023-1.025. The Coraline Margarita Snail is sensitive to copper-related medications and high nitrate levels, and it should also be acclimated to new aquariums using the drip acclimation method. We recommend you to provide the Coraline Margarita snail a diet that includes vitamin enriched algae. Also, the Mexico Coraline Margarita snail should be fed with high quality marine pellet food and flakes for its continued good health. The shell growth of the Coralina Margarita snail can be promoted by supplementing proper amount of iodine and calcium levels in your aquarium. Supplemental feeding is not necessary unless there are not enough algae in the aquarium, which otherwise can be fed by wrapping pieces of dried seaweed around the rock and placing it in the aquarium.
