I noticed that one of my turbo snails hasn't moved for 3 days in a cave, pulled it out and sure enough he was dead? how long do they usually live? anything that might cause one to die? the Three other ones are cruising around like normal?

What is the name of this snail? It seems to like the vibration of the pump motor in an eclipse 12 as thats where I find it suction cupped to every morning and during the day it seems to like to stay on the front of the tank, and doesnt seem to want to be on the rocks where there is plentiful algae.
Good Morning, TRT!
It's a chilly 30 with some patchy fog around here this morning but 'warming' to the 40's! Weatherman says snow tonight, especially heavy in the Smokies, but remains to be seen just how much we get!
Time for a second cup of coffee and some cereal!
For those of you that...
Called my lfs and asked for some clean up snails and what nots and they said they have an algae crab . I did a google on them and cant find anything on them does anybody have an Idea what they are.
Just wondering...What are some recommended fish that perform benefits to the reef aquaria? Such as, tangs that eat marco-algae. What species are better than others?
Rephrased...What fish would you want in a reef aquaria to preform tasks, aside from movement and color?
