Sure.. everyones heard about the COOL things.. but have you heard about.. the BAD things?

I had a band of nassa snails destroy and eat two of my brand new feather dusters that were happily chillin on my sandbed. They killed both of them. They also decided they liked zoas.. and were ALL over my zoo rock and they killed off most of them because when the nassa snails move around.. they leave an unsightly trail of slime.. that pretty much sticks to anything. Slime covered most of the zoas on the rock and killed them. There was only about 7 left out of 34. The choice is yours.. but i hate them and will never use them ever again. I have a pistol shrimp doing the sand sifting job for me. Everytime i look in the tank there is a new mound of sand everywhere.. so he's doing his job. I would not recommend the snails.. but many people do.. so oh well.

That's what's frustrating: Too many choices, with pluses and minuses to both.

Never saw my nassarius snails until feeding time. Always under the sand. Great sanil IMO too.

The only thing I would add is what I learned this week. I too used MaxiJet powerheads for circulation. I thought they were awsome then from taking some advice from this forum I replaced them with Hydor Koralia 2's I put 2 in a 55g. OMG the difference they make. Much softer flow and a LOT more circulation. I could not belive the difference. Not sure if the 2's would be big enough for a 75g might need the Hydor Koralia 3's.
