your cube doesn't have enough space for a conch.
Dang really ? This is the updated one I thought all the open space in the front is good I also have space in back

So how much do you want for them xD haha
I wonder how well they would do shipped in some sand. I would give you some for free. But I don’t know if you’d want to pay overnight shipping charges for weird worms lol

I would think if you get a small enough one it would be ok.

I'll take the other side of this.

Depending on how much algea you grow, you might be able to support one. A good friend has one in his jbj20 cube sitting right by two windows. He grows a fair amount of algae. We put my smallest fighting conch in there a few months ago, and it's doing great, doesn't even come close to keeping the sandbed clean, and has grown quite a bit. He also runs Kool aid and unreadable phosphates. It's a fun club.

I like using the pipe trick. I've had 100 percent success.
I've got @Rcampos set up with the tube right now. I'm going to have to remake it. My pipe extends too far into the sponge so I don't have a lot of sponge room to close over rock. I've used it a bunch in the last month and it's been great every time.

The only thing I’m growing is dinos lol I gotta win this fight then I’ll be adding a new CUC I think my trocus snail died but I’ll leave him be for a few days to see what happens I thought my fresh water snails died since they haven’t moved in 5 days and was on there back and now there back on the glass

I love my nassarius snails. They scavenge the floor, steal food from my shrooms if they are quick enough and some even head up to top of water line to find floaters:D
My hermits literally spit shine my shrooms and spin the discs to get at whatever algae they can find its funny to watch them.
That's why I love hermit crabs, because they clean the frags of algae. I watched one of my blue legged work for an hour to clean some algae off the duncan plug, and boy is it shiny now!

I really need to get however, as I'm only at 5.

Me too lol I had bristle worms shipped to me thought they were dead and then came back to life once they were acclimated

I'm about to be cutting a bunch off of my overflow and surrounding rocks. I'll probably have some pretty big sheets. You're welcome to some.
If you're offering, I'll take it! Always wanted some GSP. Plus once it grows out, I can sell it to my LFS - the owner can't find anyone to buy from, so he's had to reply on his own GSP to frag.
