Adult size turbo's from now on

I am never buying a small turbo snail again. I had two and it was everyday, they kept falling over. I have 4 adult sized one's and they have not fell over once. I believe in only buying big one's from now on because they are smart enough not to fall over and die. Yes, they are clumsy, but I like'em and have no intentions of corals in the tank I have now, and no small rocks are available for them to knock over.

I feel your pain, I have this one Turbo that can't seem to ever keep himself upright. I named him Bubba.

First of all, YUCK!!!!!!!!!!! Who in their right mind would eat a snail? I'm sure there are others who haven't had a problem with their's falling over all the time, but it has shunned me from buying the little guys again. Only the big one's from now on?

Hey, don't knock it til you've tried it. I had escargot once and it was delicious. That said I'm not about to raise up my own snails and cook 'em p I know what you mean about the turbos. My biggest one hasn't fallen over. I think my smaller one is dead because he was over on his side when I got home from work one day, and hasn't moved since I righted him.

I have tried it on numerous occasions and at different restaurants. Absolutely gross, but clams, mussels, oysters, and the alleged delicacies known as cow tongue, pigs feet, livers(great bait for striped bass), kidneys, heart, brains, and rocky and smokey mountain oysters fall into the same category. These do not sound appetizing when tenderloin, sirloin, ribs, and ribeyes are there to eat. Got long winded there. I figure if they are big, they are lucky or smart enough not to fall over.

OK all, I was kidding. When they got to escargot SIZE I moved then to the sump so they would stop mindlessly knocking over corals, and in some instances breaking them off their plugs.

LOL. How typical of those darned turbos. They are like bulldozers without operators set on autopilot to naturally destroy everything in their path. :p
