$3 for a blue leg is crazy. I can get them 99cents a piece all day long.

I don't think ya need that many snails. I have 1 turbo and 2 zebra snails in my 28 gallon. I do have lots of nassarius though but they breed in the tank.

I think you should get a turbo snail if you have a major algae breakout...my friend put some in his 300 gallon tank and they cleaned it up really fast! Wouldn't want them to starve...or add extra food just for them.

I have a few cerith snails, and they are OK, but eat relatively little for their size. If you want a powerhouse little cleaner, get some astrea snails in your lineup.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I am still undecided on my crew. Spending some time researching the different snail types. Also, shopping around for the best place to get snails. Thanks again.
