The Trochus Snail, scientifically known as Trochus sp., is a popular marine invertebrate prized for its algae-eating capabilities. Boasting a conical shell with intricate patterns, it adds both beauty and functionality to any reef aquarium. These snails are diligent cleaners, helping to maintain a balanced tank by consuming algae, detritus, and leftover food. They are nocturnal and can often be seen actively scavenging during the night. Their robust nature and adaptability make them a favorite among aquarists.
