If you don't have a CUC, you're way past time. Most people put in a CUC before adding other livestock!

Should have had a CUC since the day the tank finished cycling first thing to add to the tank. I've had a nice size CUC since day one. I had some of the algae that looks like that bought 10 turbo snails and it's slowly going away.

I was told if u add them too soon there isn't anything for them to eat as theres no deterious in the tank for them to consume.
