The Trochus Snail, Trochus niloticus, also known as the Turban Snail, features a pale green shell with  maroon stripes and a black foot. It is peaceful but shouldn't be housed with predatory fish or crabs that may attack it. The Trochus Snail prefers tanks with plenty of live rock to hide and forage for algae. They can be incredibly beneficial tank members for their penchant for algae-eating. It is reef safe and won't nip corals or other inverts. Like most snails, the Trochus requires minimal care and is an excellent choice for any home aquarium. 

I think this is one of the best looking cleaner snails available. I've have some now that are over 5 years old and still going strong.
