So when it comes time to get a CUC.. do u guys think I should go in the LFS direction or buy a package from reefs2go or some other site?

Anyone have any experience with ordering CUCs online?

I went the lfs route. For my 90g I got 6 Trochus Snails, 4 Bumblebee Snails, 4 Conchs, 2 Emerald Crabs, and 3 Peppermint Shrimp. Also got a Blood Shrimp because my wife likes them. Just added 2 more Emeralds. Tank always looks pristine.

Alright awesome.. I'll have to see what my LFS is charging.. I know most snails are $2ea and each Conch is like $8 there.

I'd just get a few snails (no turbos) and hermits at the LFS for now. I always worry about shipping in the middle of winter. Even a very few cleaners should be fine for a while. I'd also add a snail and hermit to the sump.

Gotcha yeah I wasn't gonna add a CUC for a little while.. probably no food for them at all yet.

As for the snail in the sump, what happens if it gets into different chambers? Gets sucked into the return pump? Or the skimmer? Lol

I've never had that happen but you could always just stick with one or a pair of hermits. They'll just crawl around the bottom and eat algae and leftover food that gets sucked down. Snails generally avoid pumps just like they avoid powerheads in a display but safety first. Hermits can't escape! Mouahaha
