You should definitely see the turbos they will usually be cruising around the glass or on the rocks. That really isn't that many and sometimes they go into the crevices of the rock work. Do you see empty shells on the SB?

One thing about turbos (astrea) if they fall or flip over they cannot turn back over so you need to help them if you see them. PVC pipes or drumsticks work great for this..
i noticed that when i first put them in, but theyre good now. im so relieved guys. i was freaking out for a moment.

i noticed they were all out this morning when i fed, but that makes sense, and ill be expecting more for sure.
