It naturally feeds on algae, cyanobacteria, and diatoms amongst your live rock, substrate, and aquarium glass. It is also an effective film algae eater.

One of the best algae eating snails around, but they can be seasonal so get 'em while you can.

Customer Reviews
April of Southern Cal
banded tiger trochus snail
Just love these guys. They travel all over the live rock and glass and don't fall off constantly like my astrea snails do. Will definitely be ordering more from r2g

Tiger Trochus Snail
Delivered quickly, acclimated well and came in excellent health. No complaints, though the ones I received look a lot better than the picture above. I think the picture is of a different species or at a different age.
