    Hey guys, Just started setting up my 5g nano yesterday, using live rock to cycle. I'm planning ahead for what I want to use for my CUC, because I can't help myself :freak:. I'm planning for some type of Goby as probably the sole fish in the tank, and then I'll stick to some low light soft...

    So i was looking on liveaquaria at nassarius snails to add to my CUC, since ive only got my green brittle starfish who is quite large but still not enough to do the job. Is there a difference between the different types or nassarius or do they just look different?

    I just found what looks to be a baby snail on one of my live rocks. I will try to get a picture, but it is pretty small, and my camera is not very good. Anyway, it looks a bit like a Nassarius shell, but is up high in the tank on top of rock. I do have some of these that live in my substrate...

    I bought a Nassarius from my LFS last Sunday and it buried itself in the sand after acclimation. I haven't seen it since. I have seen its siphon though. It just won't come out.

    Still researching critters and various equipment for my 20 long nano .... Years ago I had a 6 line wrasse in my mixed 135 reef with larger astrea snails with no problems. The wrasse was "one" of my favorite fish in the reef tank and plan on having one again for the nano. Would appreciate...

    Anyone have an idea where I would be able to purchase Nassarius Papillosus?

    So I have like 5-6 nassarius snails in my 14 gallon tank, and I just got a sun coral from the LFS (Whitby Ontario Big als... my advice is to steer clear) It was in a terrible way, with more than half die off and the polyps were sunken and it looked starved. So I've started to try to rehab it by...

    Ok, So I have two BEAUTIFUL Feather Dusters in the area. One of them has not only come completely out of it's shell, but has Dropped it's crown! I know I'm just panicking right now, because it could just be looking for a better spot. The concern I'm having is since this has happened, I...

    After ordering 100 I stumbled upon this.. :angry: http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2006-11/mg/index.php They were going to be feeders, so I don't really need them to stay alive long term, but the info in this article seems to be also in several other locations on the net... Anyone have any...
  11. Tank Specs
    Hi! This tank was set up in 08/09. It’s technically my second saltwater tank; I had one nearly ten years ago but had it for less than a year. I had to move and was unable to take it with me, so I sold off what I could. The rock I am using for this project is mostly the formerly live rock from...

    Can't tell whats happening here. Do nassarius mate before laying eggs? Today I came across five snails piled on top of another one. I thought it was dead and they were eating him but I poked it to check and it recoiled further in the shell. It has not moved all day but I've gone back to...
