Cerith Snail (Cerithiidae sp.)
This all around fantastic saltwater snail is a favorite among aquarists. Cerith snails eat detritus, fish waste, algae, and uneaten food. Cerith snails will scale the rock work, burrow in the sand bed and make themselves at home in your tank - happily taking care of business. Cerith snails will often appear dead during the day, as the majority of their activity can be seen after hours. They are native to the Caribbean and are comfortable in very warm tanks since their native home of tidepools can often become very hot. Cerith snails can be sensitive to quick changes in salinity and pH, therefore a slow drip acclimation is suggested.
