Dwarf Cerith Snail (Cerithiidae sp.). Although the Dwarf Cerith snails are very small, they can easily become your favorite cleaners because they can get in to the crevices of rocks where most other cleaners cannot reach. The dwarf cerith snails we sell range in size from 0.5 to 0.75 of an inch and reach a maximum size of about 0.75 of an inch. They eat all types of algaes as well as cyanobacteria, detritus and diatoms. They are nocturnal and are very hardy but sensitive to fast changes of salinity and pH. We ship these snails dry or mostly dry as they are often found along the shoreline where they only come in to contact with water as tide gets higher.
Make sure that you have a lid on your tank before you order those snails because they can crawl out of your tank. Keep in mind that you want these snails in higher quantities of at least 5 or so per gallon depending on whatever other snails you have in your tank.
