    remember, most of the snails in this family are marine vultures. And not as mush a detritus eater. Excellent clean up because something die, and they are on it like in a few minutes. You walk in, go NOOOOO, and think the snail killed whatever.

    I got 3 Babelonion Whelks. Oldest I got since I started. Actually they were my first ever snails. Must check out what happens when i chuck a mussel or piece of have into the sump.

    Only LFS I ever saw who had then, is a non sponser. Animal Kingdom, Pretoria East. Nothing now.

    You will not see them in the shop tank easily either. They hide under the substrate with just their siphon sticking out.
