One of the best algae eating snails. Also called the Red Banded Snail.

The famous Black Footed Trochus, or Red Banded snail is famous for its voracious appetite for algae and its ability to flip itself over from its back. This ability makes it one of the most appropriate snails for small aquariums and those with open sand or bare bottoms. It should be placed right side up on the sand after acclimation. Their rasping teeth are able to scratch acrylic, so are recommended only for glass aquariums. Snails are extremely sensitive to changes in water quality.
