    Monodonta australis. Technically it's a trochid, but for algae eating purposes it's the same as a Turbo. Quite inclined to wander out of the tank and dry out though if you don't have a cover.

    They not very "strong". And hermits loves their shells.
    Especially with full moon, they climb out. Better on tanks with euro bracing. Would not recommend these snails for rimless.
