The Nassarius Snail, Nassarius sp., is an excellent reef scavenger. Their trunk-like tubes extend from curved shells while searching the sand, tank wall, and rock for microfauna prey. Nassarius Snails are capable sand-sifters as they can sometimes burrow in search of food, often detritus. Nassarius Snails require minimal attention and will thrive without any care in established reef tanks with plentiful live rock and algae. Overall, these snails are incredibly beneficial and are often instrumental in keeping tanks clean and operational.
Great snails for helping to keep sand bed clean
Having a sand bottom in my nano tank, love these snails. They stay under the sand bed, keeping it clean and assume moving it around. When I feed the fish they do sometimes come out and eat any remaining food. (pelts only) These creatures do everything they are supposed to do.
