Nassarius Snail

Nassarius vibex


The Nassarius Snail has a little body with a big appetite - going around your tank foraging for any decaying waste, leftover food and nasty fish excrement in your tank. The nassarius vibex snail is an efficient scavenger - and will eat detritus. As a basic must have for your clean up crew - nassarius snails eliminate the yuck which causes nitrates which feed algae - aiding in the removal of unwanted algae by preventive maintenance.

The Nassarius Snail has a small shell approximately the size of an olive pit. Nassarius Vibex burrow into the substrate and when a morsel of dinner is available, a long tube like siphon will arise from the substrate to quickly locate it. Pushing through the upper levels of the substrate, nassarius snails help aerate the substrate, preventing compaction.

Nassarius Snails
I have 20 of these in a 30 gallon with a crushed coral base. They do an awesome job at keeping the bottom of my tank bright. Great to watch them come out when they smell food. Then 20 minutes later over half of them are gone again.
