Mexican Turbo Snail or Turban Shell Snail



The Mexican Turbo Snail or Turban Shell Snail is extremely popular among reef hobbyists since it quickly eliminates large amounts of nuisance algae. It is particularly fond of hair algae and will consume mass quantities of it and other algae off your live rock and aquarium glass. Also known as the Top Shell Snail, Turbo Fluctuosa has a thick, top- or turban-shaped shell with an iridescent interior. The Mexican Turbo Snail or Turban Shell Snail is native to the Gulf of California off the coast of Mexico.

The peaceful Mexican Turbo Snail or Turban Shell Snail should not be kept with aggressive tankmates that can quickly overcome this slow-moving creature. If algae levels are insufficient, supplement the diet of the Mexican Turbo Snail with dried seaweed. Also, adequate calcium levels are required to help this member of the Turbinidae family build its protective shell. Like other invertebrates, the Mexican Turbo Snail or Turban Shell Snail is very sensitive to copper-based medications and high nitrate levels.
