The Mexican Cerith Snail is a desirable algae eater for their ability to move about the sand and live rock as well as the aquarium glass. They are a truly versatile snail. As scavengers, they will eat algae and Diatoms, and will remove Cyanobacteria from the aquarium.
Snails are an essential cleaner. There are many different species and they vary in size and structure. Snails are remarkable scavengers that are constantly removing algae and debris tucked deeply into coral reefs and rock reefs. They do well in any environment and are generally peaceful. Some Snails, however, can be more aggressive, so it is best to allow them plenty of space and extra food when needed.
