I enjoy the snails, I was planning on getting more bumble bee snails... Also, what do you mean by floating them? Acclimating?

He means that by floating them he is making the water that the critters came in the same temperature as what his tank is, and then by adding water slowly to the bag from the tank it helps get the new inhabitants use to the water chemistry and will not shock or kill them when he finally puts them in the tank. :D

it's a 90 gallon.
and it looks like 4 of the astraea arrived are DOA.
