Nassarius Snail (Nassarius vibex)
The Nassarius Snail has a little body with a big appetite - going around your tank foraging for any decaying waste, leftover food and nasty fish excrement in your tank. The nassarius vibex snail is an efficient scavenger - and will eat detritus. As a basic must have for your clean up crew - nassarius snails eliminate the yuck which causes nitrates which feed algae - aiding in the removal of unwanted algae by preventive maintenance. The Nassarius Snail has a small shell approximately the size of an olive pit. Nassarius Vibex burrow into the substrate and when a morsel of dinner is available, a long tube like siphon will arise from the substrate to quickly locate it. Pushing through the upper levels of the substrate, nassarius snails help aerate the substrate, preventing compaction.
