Trochus snails consume 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. Trochus snails can right themselves, but like otherthey struggle to do this, and should be righted when introduced to the aquarium for best results.
The Trochus we sell have a diameter of approximately a nickel, and grow to a little over the size of a quarter.
