Margarita Snail - Margarites pupillius
Mix and Match to save! Quantity discount applies to all eligible saltwater hermit crabs and snails on your order.
Margarita snails are some of the most common snails seen and chosen in the saltwater hobby. They prefer to eat green and brown algae occurring on rock and glass. Normally, their shells are black and white and often encrusted with pink coralline algae. Margarita snails do not move well though sand or gravel so they should be placed close to rocks or glass when first placed into the aquarium. These snails are also usually found in cooler waters than most tropical marine environments and will be more short-lived in warmer tanks. They should be acclimated carefully upon arrival.
