 Hi  marine  experts,
 I  was  wondering,  do  turbo  snails  eat  brown  algae?  the  one  that  covers  rocks  and  all  other  stuff?  or  just  green?  
 and  if  not,  WHAT  do  they  eat?    Chuckle  
 
 Also,  do  they  need  any  extra  dosings,  like  adding  of  trace  elements,  or  strontium,  iodine,  etc.
 
 And  what  special  care  if  any,  should  be  taken?
 Regards,
 amod.

 Turbo  snails  are  algae  eaters  but  they  don't  eat  long  hair  algae.  
 They  don't  require  any  trace  element  additives  but  are  sensitive  to  high  nitrates  and  bad  water  conditions.  Regular  water  changes  will  be  necessary.

 If  the  hardiness  of  the  snail  is  a  concern,  you  may  collect  a  few  from  any  of  the  rocky  shores,  ones  typically  from  tide-pools  that  are  exposed  during  the  low-tide.  You  may  need  atleast  about  a  dozen  of  them  as  they  go  to  sleep  for  long  and  the  same  time  could  be  compensated  by  other  snails.
 
 They  leave  back  a  very  interesting  zigzag  pattern  of  the  uneaten  algae  on  the  glass.
 
 PS  -  Regular  siphoning  of  the  substrate  would  be  mandatory  for  their  many  many  tiny  wastes.

 really  cool  looking  pattern  when  you  closely  look  at  the  glass!
 
 enjoy!
