Nassarius margaritifer

Resides : Substrate, will burrow in sand if available
Consumes : Detritus, Leftover Fish Food
Size : 1" or 25 mm
Origin : East Africa
Availability: Irregular
Warnings : None.

Excellent sand stirrer and scavenger. These snails will pop out of the sand when they smell food, or when you are feeding fish. Nassarius margaritifer is larger than our popular Nassarius vibex, and as such are better suited for tanks that are fed larger meaty pieces of seafood, rather than multiple pieces of smaller foods which Nassarius vibex is more effective at removing at the same relative bio-load. This species comes to us from East Africa, but can be found in the Red Sea and throughout the Indo Pacific. This species grows to about 3/5 of an inch tall and 1 inch in length.
