The Top Crown Snail is a great tank cleaner for larger saltwater reef aquariums. Compared to its Caribbean counterparts, this snail hailing from the Eastern Pacific Ocean is impressive in size and appetite. This member of the Astraeinae family is dressed in a beautiful shell that develops a remarkable top-like shape.
Like other invertebrates, the Top Crown Snail is intolerant of high nitrate levels and copper-based medications. Larger predatory fish also pose a danger to these slow-moving snails.
