Need something to eat the leftovers, micro-algae, and clean your tank sand, rock or refugium???
These are adult and juveniles, most about 1/2 inch. They are not polished shells as you see as they are not all from sand flats. However, the shells will clean up in your system. They are active and voracious cleaners. You can see a little 15 second video here, once I have time to upload it. These little guys are raring to go and tough as nails. They can tolerate the full range of temperatures from less than 50 degrees F to over 85 degrees. These do, in fact, live in water over 85 degrees in the hotest summer days over 100 degrees air temperatures. The average summer temperatures for this species is 80 degrees. They thrive in all conditions and we keep them at 75 degrees in our tanks.
Accused of having a shorter life span at temperatures over 65 degrees, I have to question that claim. Considering that the water temperatures they have in our state is over 65 degrees over 7 months of the year and those in North Florida see higher temps for longer months, it seems questionable that they are any more at risk than N. vibex. While N. vibex may sustain a higher annual temperature, more research must be done to prove that heat stress occurs at 65 degrees and whether that stress actually shortens life span. It is more likely that reef keepers and home aquarists will be the final researchers in this matter if they log the survival rates of this species. However, we do disclose this contraversy to be be open and fair even though we consider it an unproven claim. If anyone can cite a current study involving captive life spans, we'd love to review it. But, until someone publishes one, we have been well satisfied with the survival rates of this species and the wild survival speaks for itself.They love to burrow in sand or other soft substrate. They will power through turning your substrate over and creating a healthier more natural system with less maintenance. I love a mix with cleaners and algae as the cleaners convert the debris to produce nitrates which the algae in turn will eat. Check out my other auctions of shrimp and algae. The more like the ocean your tank is, the better the quality and health of your pets.
