    Cerith snails

    Hi everyone, I just bought a bunch of cerith about a week ago. Since I’ve had them they all hang out right at the water line. Almost looks like they’re trying to escape. Tank temp is 78.7-79.0, haven’t had a chance to test my water but everything else (fish/coral/exsisting CUC) are doing...

    Trochus Snail shell. Issue or nothing?

    Can someone tell me if this normal for a Trochus Snail? I have about 15 of them and two of them have these "tentacles" that are coming from the outer shell.

    Cerith Snails Loosing Color

    Could this be caused by low calcium? I'm not sure but I've posted another thread that had my parameters and they said that my calcium and magnesium was a little low but I should be fine for what I have in the tank. These were Fridays readings. Ammonia 0ppm Nitrite 0 - 0.01ppm Nitrate 3.5ppm...

    Snail ID (Nassarius Maybe?)

    Hellos guys, just found this guys in my tanks. I was looking around the tanks at night, with all the pumps off and found this guys. I believe him to be a nasarrius snail, but it is striped. I could see his “antena” and had sobre stripes. Is it possible to ID a snail just by its shell? thanks

    Australia and Nudibranchs/Sea Slugs.

    Hypothetically if you were Australian and you were struggling for months to find a distributor in your country to purchase a specific Nudibranch you have researched in depth, and it is illegal to import pretty much all marine animals in Australia without a license. And you didn't want a license...

    What's your Favorite Snail?

    My all time favorite is always Conch, Conch, and Conch. Such a fun, interesting little creature. Those long eyes that react to your action. A powerful leg that moves fast. A cute elephant nose that goes didadidadoo. A heavy body that can't climb glass. A long lived peaceful creature...
