In my 29 I've tried 4 turbo snails, and all four have died. I went into the LFS
, and told them my first two died. The guy asked me if I had used coppersafe, and all about my parameters. I did use coppersafe two months ago, and I've donw many water changes since then. The two I bought the other day died laying on their shells. And it's always been within twenty four hours.
So today I went into another place, and asked them what I should do. They said the first place had to be wrong, because my shrimp is fine, and has molted twice. They said turbo's are bad, because they die if they fall on their shells. Well I didn't buy any more snails with the exception of two nassarius snails, and they are fine.
