The Mexican Turbo Snail (Turbo fluctuosa) is also known as the Turban or Top Shell Snail, Turbo fluctuosa has a thick, top- or turban-shaped shell with an iridescent interior. The Turbo Snail is extremely popular among reef aquarium hobbyists, since it quickly eliminates large amounts of nuisance algae. It is particularly fond of hair algae and will consume mass quantities of it and other algae off your live rock and aquarium glass. The Turbo Snail is native to the Gulf of California off the coast of Mexico. It is an amazing grazer and will make sort work of algae on rock work.

An excellent member of your aquarium's cleanup crew, the Turbo Snail thrives in crevices and holes in natural reefs. In the home aquarium, the Turbo Snail needs ample hiding places and large spaces to graze. Some reef aquarists prefer to keep the Turbo Snail in aquariums with well-secured rockwork since this active herbivore is known to bulldoze loose rocks in search of food. We are currently feeding Max Algae pellets as well as Nori. Size is Large
