Final Size:- Up to 3cm Purchase Size:- Approx 2-2.5cm Diet: - All sorts of algae, cyanobacteria, hair algae, diatoms & detritus Aquarium Size:- 20 Litres+ Water Parameters:- SG 1.023 - 1.026, pH 8.1 - 8.4, Nitrite 0, Ammonia 0, Will not tolerate Copper Compatibility:- Coral Safe Top Tips:- Fantastic in large numbers for tanks struggling with algae issues! Cerith Snails (Cerithium sp.) are a species of snail collected for the hobby from Indo Pacific & Caribbean waters. They are a fantastic species to have in groups to tackle all sorts of issues, they present no risks and are long lived. All in all Cerith Snails are a winning species for all aquarium sizes and one of our top picks. Diet Cerith Snails will eat a wide range of Algae species as well as eating detritus and left over food. They will clean your glass and rockwork as well as burrowing into the sand and keeping that clean too! They can be slow moving and some will be more active at night although that isn’t a hard and fast rule. The areas they have been inhabiting are extremely obvious as they leave an uber clean trail behind them. Compatibility Cerith Snails do not eat corals or other sessile invertebrates meaning they are classified as reef safe. They are extremely peaceful and the only risk of adding them is that one of their tank mates may eat them. To avoid this offer plenty of spare shells to hermit crabs or avoid keeping them together and do not add with known snail eating fish / shrimp species. Want more info?
