The Nassarius Snail is a fantastic member of the clean up crew, and will scout through your tank with a large appetite. This snail will scavenge for uneaten food and algae within the live rock and sand in order to satisfy its hunger, which makes it a very efficient addition to the home aquarium.
This snail is best housed within those well established aquariums since their diet evolves solely around food and algae on the live rock and sand. Additionally similar to all invertebrates it would not be in a aquarium with elevated copper levels or copper treatment should not be used on a tank containing this snail.
The Nassarius Snail will seek to burrow under the sand bed and from there manoeuvre around the tank with a long telescope looking tube protruding from the sand, which the snail uses for finding food. Additionally, this process will be of further benefit as it will help aerate the sand and stop any nitrate build ups from forming.
This snail will most likely be content with eating the algae in your aquarium, but if there is an insufficient amount present then it is important to feed them. They can be fed with a variety of food sources, such as algae pellets.
