Good for overall aquarium cleaning.

The cerith snail is a hardy little clean-up animal that is a great addition to any tank. This omnivore eats a variety of foods ranging from detritus to hair algae. It prefers to forage at night, so it may not always be seen during the daylight hours. It is a burrower, turning over the substrate well and promoting a clean and highly oxygenated sand bed. It has the highly desirable habit of clearing algae from the tank panels just below the substrate surface. Remaining at a fairly small size, it can get into tighter areas of the rockwork that other snails cannot. It is known for being relatively long-lived in captivity.

    I recently started a captive-bred-only reef tank. While finding fish and corals has not been too difficult, cleanup crew has been a real challenge. Enter ORA Cerith Snails. I ordered a 5-pack of these (my tank is only 20 gallons), and unfortunately the first set arrived DOA because of a shipping delay. No worries, the Algae Barn team had a second set in the mail the very next day and they arrived perfectly healthy! I did a 15 minute temperature float followed by a 30-minute drip acclimation and within 5 minutes of being in my tank they were already burying themselves in the sand. Couldn’t be happier with these snails and with my experience from Algae Barn!
