Specifications

Overview

The Nassarius Snail is a little snail with a big appetite. This hungry critter glides through your aquarium foraging for food. The Nassarius Snail is an efficient scavenger and detritus eater and is the perfect member of your reef aquarium cleanup crew.

You will be pleased at how quickly a small group of Nassarius Snails will clear detritus, uneaten food, decaying organics, and fish waste.

The Nassarius Snail is a small scavenger with an oval, spiral shell that resembles an olive pit. The Nassarius Snail likes to burrow in the sand, usually with its long, tube-like siphon protruding from the substrate. As it searches for food, the Nassarius Snail helps prevent compaction and aerates aquarium substrate.

The Nassarius Snail prefers an established aquarium with live rock and a deep sand bed. It is sensitive to high nitrate levels and copper-based medications. The Nassarius Snail is extremely difficult to breed in captivity.

5 stars title= Fascinating snail, 21st Mar 2016

Reviewer: Stephen Harris

I bought this guy a while back, and he's massive.. always a great talking point when you can see his little tube poking out of a 3 inch bed of sand haha

4 stars title= Very good, 16th Dec 2015

Reviewer: Patrick Maye

These guys spend most of their time hiding under the sand so don't expect to see them much. However they do a great job of keeping the sand clean which is why I got them.

5 stars title= Thriller, 5th Jan 2014

Reviewer: Greg Furlong

Bought a pair if these to get into my substrate.

They really get around but you don't see them too much.

All you see is their little periscope hunting for some passing food.

During feeding time they come up from the substrate like a zombie film!!

Be aware of putting them in a small tank with hermit crabs. They try to steal their shells!

5 stars title= Great Buy, 18th Oct 2013

Excellent Specimens. No issues with transport or acclimation. Great addition to the tank.
