    I started a tank and had an algae breakout. The LFS and online sources suggested turbo snails. I got two and they have been doing a good job of cleaning stuff up. However, I recently read they can die of starvation so wanted to get opinions of others. Thanks! Justin

    TRT, Anyone got a good place online where I can buy some Mexican turbo snails (turbo fluctuosa). I've been buying them from my LFS but I believe they just dump them into their CUC system without acclimating. They don't last a week in my tank from osmotic shock. I took a real close look at their...

    I have a 14 gallon BioCube about 6 weeks old. Added 4 turbo snails to clean the red alge and they have done a great job. I have very little alge now maybe a little green film on the glass. Should I feed the snails? And if yes, with what?

    Hello TRT and Happy Monday!!! I need some input on a peculiar issue I'm having in my 55g. I have several invertebrates that all seem to thrive except for mexican turbo snails. I recently introduced them to my tank and acclimated them properly for about 2 hrs. They only seem to live about 5 days...
