Astraea Turbo Snail or Astraea Star Snail
Average Size is up to 1″ inch.
The Astraea Turbo Snail, also known as the Astraea Star Snail or Astraea Conehead Snail (Astraea Tecta) has a unique shell and a heavy appetite for algae. Unlike other bottom dwellers that have drab colors to better camouflage themselves against the sand bottoms, the Astraea Turbo Snail or Astraea Star Snail boasts a pyramid-shape shell with beautiful, olive green coloration.
The Astraea Turbo Snail or Astraea Star Snail is interesting to observe in your home aquarium, but also serves a function of cleaning algae-covered live rock. Some aquarists also say the Astraea Turbo Snail or Astraea Star Snail actually consumes the entire hair algae structure, which helps prevent immediate further algae growth.
