The Nassarius Snail, Nassarius sp., is an excellent reef scavenger. This package includes 10 Assorted Sand Sifting Nassarius Snails Nassarius Snails- Baja, or Nassarius Snail Caribbean. 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. 

Healthy, active snails

Much smaller than I expected, no larger than a pea.

Got 10 of the Nassarius snails. The arrived with one DOA, but I was quickly issued a refund. The rest are active and healthy. I am fairly surprised by how small they are (0.25), but I think that will work to their advantage in my tank.

I ordered the group of 10 and was afraid that might be too many. Wish now I had gotten "two" groups of 10. They're pretty small, but are busy and even a tad aggressive. Watched one little snail try to take a mysis shrimp away from a crab! They're really a fun addition to the aquarium and are even busy laying eggs!

They were all alive and well! Great buy

I ordered two Groups of 10, and they all arrived healthy and hungry. The fact that they were shipped without water made acclimating MUCH easier. Temp acclimate for 15 minutes and dump them in the tank. It couldn't be simpler!
