    Tonight we discovered that we have three baby snails. They are about the size of a no.2 pencil tip. We just recently added new LR so I'd like to know if they hitchhiked in or if our snails are breeding.

    I was looking closly at the tank a few evenings back and noticed all these white spots on my rock. Upon closer examination I have found that I have a baby snail invasion! There are literally like 50-75 of these tiny little snails everywhere!!!!!!!! They are very small, shell is like 2mm-3mm...

    Tonight I discovered what looks like ity bity snails on my live rock. They are only about 1/16 of an inch, shaped like a snail, and transparent/white in color. There are hundreds of them maybe. Some even look like they are hitch hiking on each others backs, just like the adults do from time...

    150g Mixed Reef Tank. Halides go off and Actinic's on (Overall bit dimmer) and all of a sudden :blob: I see 100+ baby snails all over the live rock :nuts: within 15-30 minutes later, same light level, they disappear back into hiding ? I must admit, cleaning crew had dwindled to 4-6 small hermits...

    I have noticed these small white things in my tank. Where ever they are they stay put and dont move around but will multiply. I have them on my powerheads (in clumps), some on my rocks (not many) and most on my snails and hermits. But only on the snails and hermits with these kind of shells...

    But I did. I held my loupe/magnifying glass (10x) to the glass, focused on what I wanted to get; put my camera on optical zoom and clicked macro as "close" as I could get, and to my amazement, I could make out the subjects! Here they are. The first two remind me of snowflakes. The last is...

I did a quick google and came across a freshwater dip, and thats what i did. the temp and ph was matched, i put the zoa rock in freshwater for about 15...

    Hey Guys... Can you tell me what you think of the rock in this picture? Most of it looks good to me, but I'm a newbie...I guess I'm most curious about the bright reds. Would you put this stuff in a new tank if you were starting one? don't make too much fun over the pictures...stupid...

    I noticed last night, with my flashlight, that I have tons of baby snails. Is this a common thing? Will they need any special care? Can anyone tell what kind of snails they are? I know the pictures not great. They seem to be round and white with brown stripes. Thanks for any help.

    OK, so this was a first for me. As I was feeding tonight I got a splash out of nowhere. And then again. Then realised it was the astreas - 3 of them lined up on the waterline, sending out little jets of water every now and again. And then when I looked closer, I saw them letting out little...
