The Astraea Snail is a great resource for cleaning algae off your aquarium glass. It is very adept at keeping your aquarium clean. In fact, this small snail prefers to feed on nuisance hair algae, as well as cyanobacteria and diatoms. The Astraea Snail do best in a well-established aquarium with ample hiding places and enough room to roam. Keep an eye on these little guys because they have a difficult time righting themselves if they fall or are knocked upside down. Like other invertebrates, they are sensitive to high nitrate levels and will not tolerate copper-based medications. If sufficient food levels are not present, supplement the diet with vegetable-based tablet foods or dried seaweeds.

ACCLIMATION: Avoid exposing new aquatic life to bright lights after opening the box. Turn off aquarium lights prior to floating aquatic life. Allow the sealed bag with your new fish to float in your aquarium for at least 15 minutes (but no longer than one hour) to ensure the water in the bag matches the temperature in your aquarium. A bacteria booster addition can assist with the addition of new aquatic life. Petco offers free water testing in store to determine if your water is safe for the addition of new aquatic life. DIET: A well-balanced diet consists of a variety of flakes, pellets, freeze-dried and frozen foods, depending on the species. FEEDING: Feed sparingly and no more than fish can eat in 1-2 minutes. Overfeeding can quickly foul the water, especially in smaller aquariums.
