Thorny Sunshine Snail

The Thorny Sunshine Snail, or simply the Sun Snail, is an aggressive (if you can use that word for a snail) algae eater. These snails are the same size as the nerite family with similar care requirements. Sun snails are more difficult to breed and so command a slightly higher price than the nerite snail.

Clithon snails are plant safe and can handle fresh and light brackish water conditions.
