somehow when the lights go off i find about 50-60 small white Astrea babies. If I look closely enough, i can see their little antennaes. Kind of cool to know that this is happening. However, i think that the little amount of cyano and hair algae that i have is resulted from putting in Coral Accel.

Reefbound, I'm suprised your tank inhabitants don't eat the baby snails or snail eggs?!

If they survive and get to a better size I will have to weed some out. I cant believe how many there are... It literally looks like the sand bed is moving.

We will see what happens, meaning if they get larger...





Im afraid there wont be enough eats (algae on the sides and back) for them all, The algae that is left is disapearing very quickly.

Just watch closely for mass deaths. If they starve out the food supply you could end up seriously fouling your tank if not careful and with that many snails it’s hard to keep track of which ones haven’t moved for a couple of days. I would start to feed less and let nature take its course.

shipping snails shouldnt be much of an issue as long as they have their shells. A friend had some super small nass. snails shipped and 80% of them lived.

I would start getting rid of them soon, so you dont have a huge chain reaction from 5% of them dieing due to not enough food

btw ill take some too :P
