Orange Marble Snails make a great addition to the fish only or reef aquarium that utilises a sand bed. Orange Marble Snails are nocturnal animals and normally are visible later in the day or evening after the lights go out on the display. These beneficial snails help clean and aerate sandy substrate and scavenge for uneaten food and decaying organics in a similar manner to Nassarius snails. The Orange Marble Snail can grow to about 8cm and do well in all sizes aquariums that contain fish or other animals that require supplemental feedings of meaty foods.
Orange Marble Snails are scavenging omnivores, and will uneaten food, decaying organics and detritus. Offer small pieces of minced fresh fish or krill, and high quality meaty frozen foods to supplement what they will feed on from the bottom of the tank. They may prey on bivalves such as small clams so avoid this snail if housing Tridacna sp clams in the home aquarium.
Orange Marble Snails lives in the bottom substrate and searches the sand for detritus, the mortal remains of expired aquarium life and their favorite treat... bristleworms!
