Do you test the salinity of the water from the LFS? I find snails particularly sensitive and they need to be acclimated slowly if the salinity is off from my own parameters. Especially if the LFS salinity is lower than mine.. which it usually is. I also find turbo's to be kinda a hit and miss even if I select what appear to be healthy and 'stuck on the rock/glass' at the LFS, they just sometimes keep falling off stuff and never settling in. Have you checked Mg on the DT? I hear high Mg can be an issue for snails too.. mine is usually around 1425-1450ppmMy frustration is literally through the roof, BUT, I am trying to work through this.
My display tank is still a killer despite supporting the two pistols and the two gobies; it has currently killed two Mexican Turbo Snails within hours of introduction and I am afraid to add anything else to it at this point.
I currently have two successful quarantine tanks, one is a 5-gallon coral/invert tank that currently houses the following:
Orange Sun Coral
Black Sun Coral
NPS Purple Sea Whip
Fat Head Dendrophyllia
JF High Voltage Platygyra (struggling)
Firework Cloves (struggling but reproducing)
Red Legged Hermit
2 x Tongan Nassarius Snails
My second quarantine tank is a 10-gallon fish QT that is currently housing:
2 x Gladiator Clownfish
6 Line Wrasse
At this point, I am absolutely refusing to do any water changes on my display unless I have tested and find elevated nutrient levels. Otherwise, I am leaving that sucker be.
I am sending out an ATI water analysis, so hopefully I will receive that test in the next few days so I can get it sent out and hopefully rest my mind about possibly pollution.
I ran some tests with a multimeter this weekend and came back negative. More on that here:
Hi all, Please forgive my slew of threads today; troubleshooting in full swing. I just tested my display using a multimeter and the readings never stabilized. The meter read 0 before I began the tests and continued to go back to 0 each time I pulled the probes out out of the ground and the...www.reef2reef.com
Other than that, I am considering adding a bottle of coralline, but that is to be determined.
