Hi there!

Do you guys have nassarius and trochus snails in stock? How many would I need for a 55 gal. tank. Thanks!

Both should be available. I'd suggest a dozen of each unless you have some major algae issues.

Hi,

Are your nassarius snails, Nassarius Vibex Snails?

I'll defer to Jeremy on that one.

They are. Sometimes they can get the best ones -- the tongan nassarius. Ask for those!

Those are indeed the Nassarius vibex snails!

Thanks,

Do you guys know what snails I should get to help clean green algae off the sides of my tank? Thanks!

The Trochus, Margarita, and Mexican Turbos would be the best at glass cleaning. I personally prefer the Trochus. They are a little more expensive, but they are the longest lived snail that we see in the hobby for our tanks, so the restocking cost of them is much lower than the others.

Thanks,
Jeremy
