Cowrie snail

This tiny Cowrie is the size of an olive. It lived in a display tank at the local fish store for months amongst many corals, and did no harm. Since some cowries are herbivores, I decided to add it to my reef to consume any filamentous algae that it might find. It has a soft skin or mantle that extends over its shell when it feels safe. Reef safe.
