    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? THANK YOU!

    <--Nick 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 not...

    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 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?
  11. nano build off 2008
    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...

Also what are the best snails that'll really do a good cleaning job? I was thinking maybe a Queen Conch...
