The Crowned Turbo Snail, scientifically known as Turbo fluctuosa, is a charming and beneficial marine snail species that adds both beauty and utility to saltwater aquariums. With its striking appearance and impressive algae-eating capabilities, the Crowned Turbo Snail is a valuable addition that will enhance the health and aesthetics of your marine habitat.


The Crowned Turbo Snail showcases a distinctive and elegant shell with a conical shape, typically featuring bold black or brown bands encircling the shell. Their attractive appearance and their role as efficient algae grazers make them a visually captivating and functional choice for reef or marine aquariums.


These snails are known for their excellent algae-eating abilities, helping to keep the aquarium clean by consuming various types of nuisance algae, including green and brown algae. They are peaceful and typically coexist well with other tankmates, making them a valuable addition to the clean-up crew of your marine aquarium.


Caring for the Crowned Turbo Snail involves creating a stable marine environment with appropriate water parameters. They thrive in saltwater with specific requirements, including stable temperature, salinity, and pH levels. A well-maintained aquarium with a variety of live rock structures and ample algae growth will provide them with the ideal habitat. Their diet primarily consists of grazing on algae, but they may also accept supplemental herbivore pellets.

  • Temperature: 75-82°F (24-28°C)
