    Hey TRT, So I've had my 90g reef tank up and running for about 6 months now. I have a Firefish, 2 clowns and a Blue Damsel, all of which are doing great and eating. The issue is that I've been seeing a lot of empty shells laying around the tank. It looks like snails are just disappearing. I...

    The one thing that got me into the marine aquarium hobby wast he Nassarius Snail, sometimes better known as a Dog Whelk. I never seen them labeled as that, but they are Dog Whelks according to Wikipedia. Something I always liked to do was to get as many Nassarius Snails as possible for my...

    I've been finding these tiny snails lately. What kind are they?

    Hey all, I was out of town for two days and when I got back I found these on the front of my tank. After some research I figured that they are snail eggs. What I did not find is what I could do to ensure that they hatch and give me an army of cleaners. Any suggestions or should I just leave...

    Hello, Can someone please tell me what in the world is growing on my snail shell?! I haven't been able to match it with anything from the searches I've done. I'm trying to load a photo and it keeps telling me not a valid image file... its a jpg file..

    I noticed when I bought my trochus snail that there was a small white growth on its shell. I didn't think anything of it at the time, but needless to say the small growth is fairly large now. I know its a living creature because I can see black feelers coming out from the front of it. My guess...

    I purchased a few live rock about a week ago and this worm/snail like thing came with them. Can you tell me what it is and if it is okay? Two pictures are attached.

    Any idea what this is? It's a little over a centimeter across. I've seen it for about a month, the first time I saw it, it was maybe 2/3rds it's current size, so I'm wondering if it'll grow much from here. There's still very little pigment to its actual body, leading me to believe that it has a...

    My turbo snails sometimes have odd things growing on their shells. This one is adorned with spirorbid worms, vermatid snails, coralline algae, regular algae, mini feather dusters and a baby RBTA. Thought I'd show it to you guys. :) Anyone else got photos of snails carrying unusual stuff?

    I checked on my tank this morning and found this guy on the side of my wall. When I came back, it had moved across the tank to a rock. It does not appear to have any eyes, a head, mouth, or shell. What is it? Good? Bad?

    Hello all, Noticed what appears to be a small pink snail in our tank today. Hubby and I are having a hard time determining what it is and whether it's a good guy or bad guy. We got live rock from Florida gulf-- any ideas what this little might be? Any help would be appreciated!

    So last night my turbo snail knocked down my new gsp frag, and i woke up and the frag was upside down with the coral facing the sand, will my gsp be ok? It hasn't came out all morning :( i'm so scared. It was out last night and after my snailed knocked it down, it won't come out.

    The one thing that got me involved in the marine hobby is the Nasarrius Snail. I enjoyed watching waves of these little fellows emerge from the sand bed to devour fresh meat. If I could manage it, I would have a hundred and fifty in my 120-Gallon and probably be very, very content. Sadly I...

    Ive been noticing these little cob webs strung all across my live rock lately. Like a little water breathing spider ******* that decided it would be funny to make a home in my tank. I decided to do some research on this seeing how im pretty sure there are no spiders that live in saltwater (maybe...

    Today I bought my first coral and it was a smallish mushroom frag. However what i did not realise is that it was attached to the snail. I really don't want this and want it on my rock. What should i do?? Thanks
