Description
Excellent for keeping substrate clean as well as glass and rock, this snail is a nocturnal feeder and will usually be less visible during daylight hours.
Diet
Will eat algae on rockwork, and glass. Astraea snails are also great for keeping sediment in the substrate. No supplemental feedings are necessary unless there is not enough algae in the aquarium, then it is recommended to wrap a piece of dried seaweed around a rock and place in the aquarium.
