I purchased a strombus snail approximately 1 inch long three weeks ago. He/she has been great so far and enjoys doing laps of the tank vacuuming it for us :-)
This morning i noticed he/she has built a little mound in the sand subtrate at the front of the tank up against the glass...
Just a little story of what happened to my sand sifting conch-
I noticed that one of my sand sifting conches had been buried in the sandbed for about a week now - they usually bury alot but not for this long. So I took it out to have inspect it, it looked perfectly fine but upon inspecting the...

I found this little thing today, it kind of reminds me of my tiny strombus snails i used to have in my old tank... but there is nothing from that tank in this one and its not an exact match.
Cool lookin critter, but i figure i'll double check...
And before you all point out the fact I haven't posted any pics - by the time I got the camera out I couldn't find him again....but I have found a baby snail! I thought this wasn't possible - don't all the snail species have free-swimming larvae that aren't supposed to survive skimmers/return...

Ok i love inverts more than fish, some people say i am crazy but i like the creepy crawly things in my tank. Right now i have some blue leg hermits, a serpent star, many Astraea snails, Feather duster, coral banded shrimp.
What other inverts would be good to add to my 72gallon reef?
I'm a little confused. Is a Strombus Snail the same thing as a Fighting Conch? I've been trying to figure this out, and I've seen the Strombus reffered to as "Strombus Conch." If they are not one in the same, how do you tell the difference, and what is the difference?

I'm looking into getting some porcelain crabs and was wondering what people had to say about them in a reef tank. How big do they get, are they friendly to all kinds, what do they eat, etc.
Also, aside from the nice shell what do you all know about "nassarius vibex" snails?
Thanks in advance...
This should be a fun one. We have done this a while ago, but I think a lot has changed since the last time we talked about these.
What are these used for?
Do they do any good?
What is one?
How do you plumb one?
Wow the list goes on. :D
