Dr. Mac's Comments:
We sell both Jumbo and regular Nassarius snails. They are excellent sand bed scavengers and are totally reef safe. They are obligate meaty food scavengers and will a do a great job cleaning up leftover foods and carrion. Its really interesting to see them suddenly arise from a calm sand bed when leftover food is available to them. We always keep some of these in our reef tanks with sand, about 1 for every 5 gallons.
