I have hundreds of mature collinista snails that I want to get rid of. There are too many in my tank and I have no more algae for them to eat. They are reef safe and are sometimes portrayed as mini turbo snails. They also reproduce frequently and easily in the home aquaria. Pick up in Vegas, I can ship but it's not worth it unles you want 50-100 snails. Shipping will be buyers expense of $15.00 fedex.

Thanks.

They're not invasive, are they?

They mainly eat film algae and detritus. In situations, they are not invasive in a negative way and are favored for cleaning pores in rocks and algae on glass. They are nocturnal and reproduce at a high rate. Google pictures, I can't post pics at this moment. They are about 1/4 inch and are banded like trochus snails.

@Degener8 The general call for collonista snails still lives on!! :D but yea ill try PMing or making a new thread all together. Thing is, these lil guys always hitchhike and noone actually sells them (i like customizing my own live rock! besides some seed rock). Drift monkey whats the game plan, have you found anyone kind enough to pull them outta the tank for you?
