The Top Crown snail is an efficient algae eater that is beneficial for any aquarium. They require very little attention after introduction only needing a source of algae and plenty of live rock.

Top Crown Snails are most sought after for their larger size and ability to write themselves when fallen over.
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.
