Cerithium litteratum

Stocky cerith

Maximum length: 3.4 cm

Maximum depth: 0 - 88 m

Prefers shallow waters and reefs.

Diet: Algae. It helps to remove algae and thus create free areas

so that corals can colonize better. 

Small hermit crabs like to move into the empty shells

when the snails have fallen victim to predators.
