    I placed an order with saltwaterfish.com and they shipped all of the turbo snails (30) without any water in the bag. now almost all of them died within the first 24 hours of being in the tank. everything else was fine, hermits and nass snails. Has anyone else heard of shipping snails without...

    Well I think that I've had some of my clean up crew die off and I'm in need of some additions. Right now I have some blue legged hermits, nass. snails? (they bury themselves and have a long trunk thing), and a few bumblebee snails. I think i'm going to add some more hermits, and was wondering...

    I noticed it a little yesterday and ALOT today. My house is smelling HORRIBLE. It smells like a real bad day at the beach. I have no dead or missing fishes, and everything looks ok. A few days ago my water was fairly cloudy but it has cleared up. Does anyone know what could be causing this...

    so after lights out, when the open brain was reaching out with its tentacles, i decided to drop a piece of krill on it. the army of nassarius zombies came out of the sand, and started to circle the brain... hopelessly trying to get to the food. until one of them had the bright idea to crawl on...

    I dont remeber what kind of hermit crab we have but weve had him for a while. Recently, he stopped moving around. I let him be figuring he would be molting soon (this is what he did last molt) well its been almost a week and nothing. With closer inspection, we noticed some thing fuzzy on his...

    I notice that my tank gets cloudy towards the end of the day, and I think a cause might be running my lights too long b/c when I turn it on in the morning its usually a lot less cloudy. Any advice on how or if I should adjust it? My lighting is 1x400w 14k MH + 4x39w T5s (2 10k + 2...

    Tonight i saw 3 very tiny Nassarius snails in my reef. They are maybe an 1/8" long. My daughter said she saw one over a month ago but i didn't believe her at the time. Is thia a regular thing? Are there eggs i am missing somewhere? If so what do they look like? My cam batts are dead otherwise i...

    Oh man.....Nassarius snails are the coolest things ever! I got my cleaner package from etropicals.com and I had ordered 10 nassarius snails with it. They had all burrowed into the sand and as soon as I fed the tank they all came shooting out to feed. I had read about it but I didn't expect...

    If there's any group orders going in the near future for snails/crabs could someone PM me? I don't have access to the member forums any more so I can't really see when things are going on. Thanks.

    So I just got done switching my tank over to my updated 55g. I think the first thing on the list is to upgrade my clean-up crew. At this point, it's save to say I'm starting from nothing. What I'm thinking about is: 35 astrea/turbo snails 15 cerith snails 10 nass snails (Should i have these if...

    I just got the lights last nigh, they're bright enough to light my entire room up! It's a 65 watt pc retro, and the lamp fits exactly over the top of my tank. I put in about 10 lbs of base rock, 2 pounds of LR. I don't know how to describe it, but my completely dried out completely dead BR...

    I just went to the store to pick up a dozen or so nassarius snails, I've never bought them before. I acclimated and placed them on the sand bed and none of the are moving?? I looked in the hole and can't seem to locate a foot (do they retract all the way into their shells, so far you can see...

    In your guys opinion what/who would be my best bet to get rid of detris in my tank. I'm doing water changes while siphoning and using a micron filter, but its not enough. Everyweek, the same amount of detris is raised fromt he substrate . . . . .specific snails that prefer detris over algae...

    I'd like to know if anyone else keeps this species? My 3 are tank raised, dads were wild caught, and I cannot get them to eat frozen. I have been feeding live brine soaked in a vitamin supplement for a half hour before feeding, and I do soak the frozen mysis in with that, but the horses flat...
