15g water change once a month sounds much better than weekly.Yeah they want their shells it’s like free housing lol.
get the small hermits blue and red legs tiny ones shouldnt be able to eat to many snails mostly detritus and algae the huge turbo snails eat a ton as well but they tend to knock things over
most people aim for 20 percent water change for the month so 15 on a 75 gallon tank with a sump sounds perfect to me
Remember algae and coral need the same thing to grow some nitrate some phosphates you put things in your tank that eat algae but nothing that eats coral to create an environment that looks like only coral grows
algae just grows faster and likes excess of both corals dont love excess like the algae does
I had blue legged hermits before. They still slowly killed all the snails. I do need to up my cuc though. Definitely something to put on the list.
I did some more rock scrubbing on the tank tonight. I also added 10ml of live phyto. I kept the skimmer on, but removed the skimmer cup. Hopefully that is ok?
I also tried to deal with the ever growing aiptasia problem. Another thing I will need to deal with as aiptasia x doesn't seem to keep up.
On the downside, I had an entire head of hammer coral bail out in the 25g so things there are still being affected by whatever is going on.
I also noticed that one of the cats has put a hole in the line coming from my ro/di booster pump, so that will be something else to fix...
