I just received an order from reef cleaners last week. I used their acclimation process of just floating (I usually drip) and I only had 1 DOA chiton but they gave me 3 extras anyway. IMO, make your own CUC like I did by just ordering each thing separately. They'll always throw in extras so just order a few less than you want. They were cheap and their product is great. Wish they sold fish and more inverts!

Do you guys think the 25 dollar shipping is worth it? I want to get a good amount of blue legged hermits and snails. Would I be saving more if I ordered from them or if I were to buy from the lfs?

Have you checked out reefs2go or your LFS? That seems steep.

I'd use reefcleaners. The amount of money saved is high.

Reefs2Go's shipping is just as much.

I would definitely go ahead and order them- I'm ordering snail clean ups for my 10g and my 40g- I paid a heck of a lot more for 4 blue leg hermits and an emerald crab than the whole snail clean up crew and shipping, after you add the cost of gas, for my 10g ordering it!!

Free shipping from reefs2go. Not sure where the shipping is the same if this is free.

I have ordered from them multiple times and have always been very happy. I wouldn't hesitate if it is more economical then the LFS.

20 Nassarius snails? You are definitely going to have to add food to the tank for them!

Haha that was my point. That's what some places have recommended for my tank! A small 29 gallon bio cube. Way way overkill.
