The Margarita Snail is one of the most sought after home reef inhabitants. This is because they can consume large amounts of algae, including nuisance hair varieties. Plus, unlike some snails, Margarites pupillus is non-venomous and peaceful towards corals, invertebrates, and other tankmates. Also known as the Stomatella Limpet, Little Margarite, and Pearl or Pearly Topped Snail, the Margarita Snail has a brown body and smooth, turban-shaped shell and may grow up to 1" as an adult.

The Margarita Snail does well in the home aquarium provided it is well established and has an ample algae source for the Margarita Snail to feed upon. For best care, they should be kept at cooler water temperatures with other peaceful tankmates. However, most Margarita Snails can adjust to an aquarium with a water temperature as high as 78 degrees Fahrenheit.

Like other invertebrates, the Margarita Snail is sensitive to high nitrate levels and copper-based medications. Also, it should be acclimated to new aquariums using the drip acclimation method. The Margarita Snail is sensitive to even small changes in water parameters including pH, temperature, and alkalinity. To promote shell growth, supplement calcium levels in your aquarium.

Keep in mind that the Margarita Snail will starve if algae levels become sparse. Therefore, supplement their diet with dried seaweed. To feed, use an algae clip or wrap the seaweed around a rock or empty shell and place into your aquarium, next to the glass.
