Orange Chestnut Snail

Scientific Name: Turbo castanea
Reef Compatibility: Yes

Minimum Tank Size: 10 gal

Max Size: 2”

Food/Feeding: Herbivore

Notes: The Chestnut Snail is an elegant, yet functional, addition to any reef aquarium. Like other snails, Chestnut Snails are a powerhouse when it comes to cleaning algae and detritus from your aquarium. And like other members of the Turbinidae family, the Chestnut Snail boasts the same turbinate, or top-shaped shell. However, it is its well-defined and bead-dotted spirals and bright orange color patches that really stop any onlooker's eye. 

In the wild, Chestnut Snails are often found in crevices and holes of the reefs, quietly serving as one of nature's more diligent housekeepers. In the home aquarium, the Chestnut Snail is equally as peaceful and useful. Most prefer ample hiding places and large amounts of room to graze, preferably amongst live rock. They will also feed on the algae covering aquarium glass. Combined with their easy care requirements, the Turbo castanae is ideal for both beginning and advanced reef hobbyists.
