Newborn Aquacultured Trochus

Species Availability:   No stock
Very tiny! These aquacultured Trochus are less than two months old, and 1.5mm in diameter. Please read full description.

These are very young Trochus snails, about 1.5mm in diameter. That is very small. No larger than a semicolon in 12 font Times New Roman. Half the size of Lincoln's head on a penny. It will take them approximately 2 years to reach full size, but will be a good size after one year. At this size, they are not cost effective cleaners, but more of a curiosity. 

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.

The Trochus grow to a little over the size of a quarter.
