I bought some empty hermit shells but the hermits i have dont' seem to like those...they go right for the nassarius shells. Good thing the nass snails were cheap.
Thats wierd, my hermits go after the turbo shells and I have never lost one Nass Snails. I dont think Ill be getting hermits again. Maybe blue legged ones that are more peacefull but still might not.


Pics and specs coming soon...

This is kind of a side to the original topic, but it got me thinking about how to care for sandsifting stars. My favorite local fish store just recently went out of business and I happened to be in the shop on the last night it was open. They were giving away any remaining livestock and I ended up taking 3 sandsifters just to give them a home. My tank is only a 50 gallon and I've wondered if they are getting enough to eat. They are fairly small, only about 1 to 1&1/2 inch across. I'm currently putting a new 90 gallon reef tank together and figured I would move a couple there once it's up and running. I've tried spot feeding by putting a little formula one in the sand and placing a starfish on top of it, but they don't seem to have much interest in it. They seem healthy and to be doing ok but I've only had them a couple weeks. Any tips on how to care for these guys?
