A LFS has this custodian package, and I was wondering if it would be suitable for my 28g nano cube.
12 - Blue Legged Hermits
3 - Red Scarlet Hermit
5 - Astrea Snails
5 - Margarita Snails
5 - Cerith Snails
My original CUC plans consisted of nassarius snails, peppermint...

Here is the list of my critters ... more or less:
6-10 Astrea Snails
6-10 Cerith Snails
6-10 Margarita Snails
1 – Starry Blenny
1 – Fire Shrimp

1 – Blue Mandarin Dragonet

My name is Kurt and I am new to TRT. I have been reading many of the discussions and checking out all the nice tanks that you guys have. I am building a reef tank for my son to give us something to work on together and give him something to watch before going to sleep. I have had...
I have a 150 reef tank and I'm having a bit a a algae problem(started another thread about that). This has made me wonder if I have enough guys and girls in my clean up crew? I have about 5 turbo snails and about 5 hermit crab along with a bullet goby and a sand sifting conch.
I started my 29 FOWLR tank about a month ago. It's finished cycling with 16lbs of LR and currently houses some margarita snails, nassarius snails, and some blue-legged hermit crabs.
Although some of the margaritas have fell victim to the crabs... despite many extra shells laying around, I...
The LFS said I was ready for snails and crabs, but I still don't have a ton of algae growth in the tank or other fish...
What and how much should I be feeding nassarius snails... margarita snails... and blue-legged hermit crabs?
We have a green hair algae problem in our seahorse tank. Last weekend, we went on all the boards looking for a solution that is safe for our horses...
We found "Halloween Hermits" (AKA Ciliopagurus strigatus) to have an appitite for the algea we had, and they were small enough to...
Well, last time I used astrea, mexican turbos, nassarius vibex, illynassa obsoleta, blue leg hermits and scarlet hermits. The whole atlantic inverts in a tank packed with pacific corals. This time I am leaning towards a south pacific only tank. Kind of silly I know. The pacific is a Huge area...
I lost most of my clean up crew in the plastic tub basement reef.
Astreas, turbo, nassarious, cucumbers, and fire shrimp perished.
I have a few limpets and one turbo snail left I think.
What do you experienced BB reefers think I should buy for reef janitors?

Ok, here's what I'm working with currently:
30 gallon tank
K2 Viper MH w/ 150watt 14k
Red Sea HOB skimmer
recently added yet another HOB skimmer, courtesy of Bono (hey, 2 is better than one right?)
~25-30lbs of LR (now somewhat covered with green hair)

Ok - so I'm wanting some suggestions for a clean up crew for my 12g Nano...
I don't think what I have now is enough...
It's a 12g nano w/ a young pair of maroon clowns, live rock and their anemone...
Right now I have 2 Astraea Snails, 4 Nassarius Snails and 1 tiny hermit...
I usually get nassarius snails to do my dirty work but they prefer sand. What are some great snails that will fit well in a bare bottom tank?
I know I can get some astrea's but also want a variety. Are Cerith's out? don't they also like sand to dig in?
For just under a year, I've been stalking the forums to learn as much as possible before building my first reef tank. What began as a 72G bow has been revised to a 30g nano after learning of a job change that will move me across the country. I just finished the tank and stand two weeks ago, so I...
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...
I have a 150 with a 30 gallon sump. I was just wondering how often and how much do you feed your fish? The reason I ask is I had been feeding my fish every 2 days and only what they could eat in a min or so. My wrasse seemed unhappy and his jumping had increased. After posting a...
so it's time to get started...
<O:p</O:phaven't had a real reef tank ever. i tried once ten years ago, but everything crashed when i went on a three week trip. keeping a reef tank has been one of my greatest joys and also my biggest defeats when my old tank crashed. <O:p
