The tiny Bumblebee Snail benefits most marine reef aquariums in big ways. Heralded for their small size and beautiful colouration, Bumblebee Snails can get into small crevices and tight locations between rockwork. Here, they clean away detritus, including uneaten meaty foods and decomposing organisms. This tiny member of the Buccinidae family also burrows into your sand bed, consumes sand-dwelling worms, and helps aerate your substrate. Plus, with its striking black shell, striped in elegant white to yellow bands, the Bumblebee Snail is indeed beautiful to observe.

For best care, offer ample hiding places with large areas to roam. The Bumblebee Snail prefers to consume foods off of live rock and deep sand beds where it can forage for food undisturbed. Though peaceful, keep in mind that the Bumblebee Snail is a carnivore. If there is insufficient food, the Bumblebee Snail may feed on other snails in your aquarium or indiscriminately consume polychaetes whether beneficial or the more troublesome bristleworm.

In well-established systems, most Bumblebee Snails do not require supplemental feeding. However, if sufficient food sources are unavailable, supplement their diet with offerings of meaty foods, including finely chopped brine or mysis shrimp and frozen meaty foods. 

Like other invertebrates, the Bumblebee Snail is sensitive to copper-based medications, high nitrate levels, and even the slightest fluctuation in water parameters.
