    Can a hermit crab change into a snail? I have had two crabs turn into snails! I started out with 12 crabs and NO snails. I have since found two crab carcasses and now have two snails. Any ideas? I checked all shells before they went in and they were crabs! The funny thing is I told my wife...

    I have a 200 gallon tank that has been up for over 20 years. For the past year everything I put into it, except fish, dies. Finally yesterday we looked for possible Bristleworms at night. We were shocked. There were, no kidding, thousands. We have ordered a trap, but does anyone have any...

    I went over to MWC today to figure out what to do about my hair algae problem. Jim said a lot of times nitrates do come in through the salt mix you're using, but I use Instant Ocean so I'm not sure the exact cause of my problem.
