Ok warning you now if they are dead they are really going to smell really REALLY bad. I was really stupid and had to put one up to my nose a second time as if the first time wasn't bad enough.

OK so 6 of the 10 are dead. Really bad smell and the foot fell off one as I took it out of the tank. As for the 4 survivors, 2 have been at the water line since the morning after I put hem in the tank and the other 2 have moved nly inches from where they were.
What are they supposed to do? I figured they would go around the tank cleaning up the algae that has grown on the glass or at least on the rocks or something. I got plenty of algae for them.
They are not living up to their name.
The little nassarius booggers are all over the tank, and fast too!
The cerinths are really boring. I catch a glimpse f one every now and then, but for the most part, they live under the sand.
Any suggestions on the turbos and what I should maybe replace them with?

I drop some algae wafers for mine. When I ordered mine from reefcleaners I was told about the three day wait. I had a hit the sand wait. The second they hit they went to work, moved etc. You can see if the algae wafers or seaweed planks work for sustaining. The key is what every said; try not to over due it.

Did you check the salinity of the water they came in and compared it to your tank? I managed to kill all my snails when I went on vacation for two weeks and didn't tell my neighbors to top off the water as it evaporated. It wasn't a whole lot that was gone, but it was enough to kill all the snails. Fish and crabs did great, though.

Good point on hyper or hypo-salinity.

Depending on how long they in the were the bag; the ammo build up could have killed them even with slow drip. I tossed mine in without any acclimation.

The snails were shipped dry except the turbos that were wrapped in wet paper towels from reefs2go. The only water they had was what was on them when they were pulled out of the tank.
