This sandsnail lives in gravel or sand and move the substrate around constantly. Often you only see his breathing tube or a piece of his house. A thick layer of coral sand is needed for him to find food and shelter.
Watch with hermit crabs since they could highjack its house.

Work and changes to 60 litre aquarium

Post  thierry on Thu Jun 16, 2011 1:23 pm

Yesterday I did an extensive feeding round, frozen artemia for the fish in the RSM, frozen fish for the Bulb Anemone in the RSM and frozen coral food in both aquaria. Also in the Crab tank I put a frozen shrimp for the crabs, but when I put the shrimp on the sand the sand started moving a the Babylon Sand snail came out and claimed the shrimp. I will add a movie of this soon, it was an awesome thing to see!
