    Anyone in the 45 miles west of Tallahassee/ Sneads area (or who want to drive) that needs Mexican Turbo snails or a Sea Hare - I'm willing to give a few away for free or small donation. My tank has stripped of algae and I'm having to feed nori. I realize that this is Jax site but we have few...

    Hi! I'm a newbie so forgive the ignorant questions! I just introduced my first group of fish and critters (from LiveAquaria) to my reeef tank yesterday. They joined 9 hermit crabs that I caught locally on Sunday. I drip-acclimated everything and the water parameters are perfect. 3 snails...

    Okay, so after the debacle with the killer split pea soup, my tank was pretty much nuked. Have my firefish, a few pieces of coral, a blue leg hermit, a few ceriths left. Tank went through the uglies again, and was in the middle of a hair algae outbreak (which I was letting run its course-no...

    I did a 10% water change last night. That was my first time using water I bought from the fish store. I woke up today and my snails aren't moving. I looked at one on the glass and it wasn't moving, It was perfectly still, except for the power head blowing it around, is it dead? Levels Ammonia 0...

    I found these white spots covering the back and sides of my tank! Please help identify what they are!

    I have a tank that contained a mixture of snails (turbos, margarita, etc.) There were probably five varieties. I also have two or three red legged crabs and two or three blue legged crabs. The problem is that every time I put some snails in the tank (65 gallon reef) they are attacked by the...

    I recently saw him eating a snail !!!!!! and then i removed the snail off of him then he went for another!!!! Is this normal behavior? do they actually eat snails ? should I get rid of him or is there another solution?

    Hi still new to this. Tank running for 4 days and clearly have at least one snail possibly 3. Can only assume came from live rock. Too small to identify but completely white at moment. One is on glass, two possibles are on live rock. All tank readings are good. Can there be bad snails. Is this...

    So in my current 75 gallon fowlr, I have two small clowns, a blenny, a snail, two hermit crabs and a raccoon butterfly fish. Everyone gets along great except for the snail and the Raccoon fish, because he/she keeps on biting it on its foot then my snail hides in its shell for protection. I feed...

    I have a three month old 40 gallon breeder with 3 blue legged crabs, 2 emerald crabs, and 9 snails (cereth, I think). no fish yet. I would like to increase the size of my crew because the algae is growing too quickly. Nitrites are zero and nitrates are about the same. I'm getting bubble...

    I have a 40 gallon tank with two clowns, two dartfish, a blenny, and a red blood shrimp. I also have about 7-8 hermit crabs and about 4-5 small snails.... I just came back from a week long vacation and it looks as if my snails have given birth... I have at least 12 (I think more) baby snails who...

    Hi everyone. Snails are all dying. Nothing has changed (ph,salinity,etc) Any suggestions?. Thanks
  14. New Member Introductions
    Hi all. I recently established a twenty gallon saltwater aquarium, after a little convincing from my more experienced brother who has a 55 gallon one. At first we were looking just to establish a back up tank for him but now I have a tank of my own. I currently have a chalck basslet and a tiger...

    I have purchased emerald crabs and snails 3 different times and each time they die. I drip acclimate them for a really long time until the salt level are equal, but it seems that as soon as they hit the tank they die. I'll leave them in one spot in the tank and the day they will still be there...

    Ok so this is probably a really stupid question but whatever. Whenever I do a water change, do i need to make sure that all the snails are in a place where they will be in water once the water is taken out or will they be ok out of water for a short time?
  17. Reef Fish
    Last week I added 10 snails to my tank and within 2 days all of them had quit moving and spewed out a white, stringy substance that almost looks like they're covered in cob webs. I didn't smell them but I just assumed they were dead and removed them. Last night I added 6 more to the tank and 3...

    Heyo TRT! In my ever continuing pursuit for uniqueness, I'd love to get some ideas! I need a clean up crew for my 15gal nano tank. Now before any suggestions, know that I plan to have a lot of corals and a Warty Clown Frogfish. Of course I'm eyeing snails, hermit crabs, and starfish. However...

    Ok I Have turbos, bumble bee, narcissus, conch and cerith snails. A few months ago I Noticed the ceriths were laying eggs(on the glass). Now I have maybe hundreds of tiny white "cerith looking" snails. Now I know it is Highly unlikely these guys ARE Ceriths....but they look just like them and...
