Description
Small but mighty, Nassarius snails will plow through your aquarium substrate and climb rockwork scavenging left over fish food, decaying matter and other meaty bits. They require a sandbed as this is where they spend their time hiding waiting for food to become available. When they smell something to eat, they’ll pop out of the sand at a pretty amazing speed and consume whatever they find to eat in record time. They are entertaining and fascinating little creatures and will give you hours of enjoyment.
Diet
Will stay mostly on sand and rock surfaces eating extra fish food, detritus, decaying matter etc. Can occasionally be seen climbing glass – usually in the middle of excitement from smelling food. Supplemental feedings are welcome and appreciated in the way of raw table shrimp, mysis shrimp, silversides, mussel, clam, scallop and other meaty bits.
