Brackish Snails














Nassarius Vibex

$.95/ea.
Looking for the best substrate cleaner around? You found 'um! Nassarius vibex snails. These little guys stay buried beneath your substrate and wait for the enticing aroma of food. It doesn't take much to get them "popping" out of the ground and chase down the food. You'll find our Nassarius snails very healthy, hardy, and inexpensive. Don't forget, ALWAYS FREE SHIPPING!

Nassarius Obsoletus

$.75/ea.

These snails are larger than their cousins the vibex. You will not need as many of these snails because they eat more and are much more active than the vibex. They do bury themselves in the substrate, just not as much. THEY EAT A LOT! They also come from more temperate waters(North and South Carolina). They will do well in reef aquariums, but will have a huge appetite. If they do not get enough to eat it may slightly shorten their life span.

Virgin Nerite Snails

$1.50/ea.
These snails are great little algae eaters. These snails are true marine snails. These snails are personally collected in the Florida Keys. These snails have been known to reproduce in captivity.

Marginella Snails

$1.25/ea.

This local snail is a tan/brown color. We find these snails to be excellent detrivours and behave very much like the Nassarius snails. They will bury in the sand looking for dead material to devour. These snails are typically 1/4" in length.

Bubble Snails
$1.25/ea.
These cool snails are actually sea slugs. Their bodies are too big to fit into their shells. These snails are collected mostly in the spring and summer months. They are primarily nocturnal and will eat detritus and diatoms from the sand bed.

Dwarf Cerith Snails

$.75/ea.
These snails are collected in the central Florida inter coastal waterways. They stay very small maxing out at 3/4" long. Their coloration is often gray or brown sometimes speckled. These snails feed on organic matter in the substrate and also on algae along the glass, rocks, or plants.

Olive Nerite Snails

$1.49/ea.
These snails are collected from the Caloosahatchee river in south Florida. The river is considered a freshwater river, but is high in dissolved minerals. These snails are excellent algae eaters and will live at home in any brackish water environment.

Crown Conch Snails

$1.95/ea.

These snails are collected in the warm Florida waters. They will reach a maximum size of nearly four inches. Their coloration can vary from black, brown, or gray and are banded or striped. These snails feed on organic matter in the substrate and are detrivours. These snails will bury in the substrate up to two or three inches deep.

Right Handed Hermit

$1.00/ea.

These tiny hermit crabs are collected in brackishwater off the central Florida coast. They stay small which makes them safe for use in nearly every type of aquaria. They are omnivores and will help control detritus and algae.
