Margarite Green Spiral Snail Care Facts

Care Level: Easy
Temperament: Peaceful
Diet: Omnivore
Reef Safe: Yes
Minimum Tank Size: 5 Gallons
Max Size: 1 inch
The Margarite Green Spiral Snail, Tegula verdispira, also known as the Margarite Snail, features a pale green spiraled shell. It is peaceful but shouldn't be housed with predatory fish or crabs that may attack it. The Margarite Green Spiral 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 Margarite Green Spiral Snail requires minimal care and is an excellent choice for any home aquarium.

I can never get enough of trochus snails. I have them present everywhere there is algae and they do a great job at cleaning algae. The bigger the better, sure smaller ones work and eat, but you can see the job done quicker with the bigger trochus.

Got these specifically for my refugium. My tank has been cycled for a while now but occasionally I’ll keep fighting this diatom issue. My refugium was actually looking pretty slimy so I got these snails knowing they eat diatoms. Within 2 weeks, my walls are fairly clean and I can actually see my cheato growing. Don’t hesitate to pick up a few of these especially if you have some algae issues from time to time.
