Richtig gute Algenfresser, nachtaktiv.

There is no snail of genus [i]Astrea[/i]. The correct name is [i]Astraea[/i]. They need a lot of algae to survive. A lot of them come from temperate and rocky zones so are not really reef "ready". Constant high temperatures cook them and they have not developed a self-righting mechanism when they fall or get knocked down to sand.
