    Mine is 4 months old and it's mostly purple now. Only a few spots here and there that's not purple yet.

    That will be nice.

    I am wanting to add some more snails to eat some of the algae I have a single turbo snail that is doing good. I feel if I add more they will starve since I don't have a lot of algae.

    My question is what kind of snail should I get to take care of what the turbo doesn't get to.

    In my 65g I put like about 9 turbos, a few hermits and a few other types of snails. The turbos get to places just fine. Whatever they don't get the tang and the angel takes care of. If your afraid of them starving, some algae sheets would do the trick.

    I only have like a couple of astrea snails. About 6 or so nassarius snails plus a tiger conch. Also a sally lightfoot and a coral banded shrimp.

    I am looking to get a couple of Nassarius and Cerith Snails.
    Not planning on any crabs or more shrimp.
