Mexican Turbo snails took care of my hair algea problem, I would say about a half dozen should do you right. Sit back and watch them go to work.

Are you using RODI water?? That would be the biggest help!! What size tank and how many fish?? Also what kind of skimmer?? A good skimmer goes a long way

I have to ask.. How do I tell if my Turbos are mexican?? I don't think they are as there are no little bottles of tequilla in my tank nor any snails in little sombraros. So how do you tell..

I believe the mexican turbos are much larger than the regular turbos. I am not certain though.
