I was looking at my reef today and I like to look into the sump and watch the invertebrates. I don't normally notice my snails as they make me mad because they move all my very organized coral around. Although today I saw this guy and wondered, when the hell did this snail get so big?! So I got a ruler and measured him..

He is a Trochus snail which is my favorite and only 1 of 2 types I own.

So I was wondering, does anyone have a bigger one? How big do they get in your home aquarium? Have you guys had them breed for you? Are you able to raise the young?

They’ll spawn , or can. Mine did in my display. I have probably found 20 that have survived. Most won’t make it and will be eaten when they are tiny.
