Trochus radiatus consumes film algae, hair algae, diatoms and some species of cyanobacteria. These snails are excellent for cleaning the rocks and glass of your aquarium, but tend to shy away from the sand. They are easy to breed in captivity and are generally hardy. Most of these snails are aquacultured.
Well fed and mature Trochus radiatus are easy to breed in captivity. Females lay several fertilized eggs on hard surfaces of the aquarium, that hatch within a few weeks as developed snails capable of feeding on diatoms and film algae. They will be about the size of a pin head at that time. It takes about a year for them to reach adult size.
