    Last week, I lost one of my tonga fighting conchs, so I picked up two small nassarius snails. Today, I found one of them out and about. At first, he was spinning around and around with a hermit crab on his shell: Then, after the zebra hermit had finished his ride, the nassarius went nuts...

    Hey guys, <O:p</O:pMy new set up has a pretty big sump (55gal) and lots of room for my refugium. Currently the fuge area has a DSB, a few chunks of LR and some Cheato lit by 40w of 6500k. There are quite of few almost microscopic copepods buzzing around in there also. So what else do you...

    I need to get a better clean up crew but I'm not sure what to get. I have snails right now. Small narissus type and two turbo snails. I have a 150 gallon tank. I was thinking about some crabs, but I had blue hermit crabs and they messed with my corals. I also like the brittle stars, and cucumbers?

    I'm having a bit of an algea problem. Also seems to be just this layer of junk on my live rock... I know I need more snails, so i have about 20 turbo snails for my 65g. How many should I get? Also what are the best snails that'll really do a good cleaning job? I was thinking maybe a Queen Conch...

    Hi all. I have a 29g that has been running for about 2.5 months. I have about 40 lb of live rock, and about a 2" aragonite sand bed. I am running a prizm deluxe skimmer as well as powerheads on each side of the tank. The powerheads are pumping around 900 gph. The tank parameters are all...

    I just rescaped my 29g tank, and I have a small area of sand bed that my tonga fighting conchs can't get to. I'd like to keep it the way it is, because my occelaris really like to sleep there. My problem is that the area isn't getting sifted as much as I'd like. It's too small of an area to...

    I'd like to take out & replace the top layer of my crushed arg. substrate. It catches too much detritus & grows some funky colors visible in the lower layers. What type/brand/grain size are people using? I have a 90g mixed reef with pretty good flow, but would like some finer substrate...

    Ok i have been told that my snails are nassarous snails. But i was looking at another web site and saw these other snails that look more like the ones that i have. I cant tell anymore which ones i have. The first pic is of my snails in my tank. This pic is of the web site that says...

    My sea urchin/turbo snails/blenny pretty much eat all the algae in my tank off the glass/rocks.... but my sand bed ( 6 inches deep ) has gotten a lot of red and green spots in it all along the 4+ inches that is visible through the glass. What should I put in the tank to help with this? A...

  12. Nano Reefs
    Just a short background on the 3g nano. It was made up of NSW, sand and rock from the inlet/beach are near home. After getting things to a normal level (150% water change and then some) my crabs wont go in the sand. The only fish in here is the Beau Gregory damsel and about 10 hermits. Beau is...

    I was speaking to the very helpful bloke down at my LFS and he was telling me that hermit crabs are not the best for cleanup crew as they eat stuff that you want in tank as well as stuff you don't want. He was telling me Sea Cucumbers and urchin's are a better alternative. My tank is a...

    I have seen some sand sifting crabs online and I'm thinking of getting some. I have some red slime on my sand and have been trying to get rid of it. I pulled some of it off the sand yesterday and I pulled up a layer of sand with it which is pretty much all over my sand bed. I am looking for...
