I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Umm Ok, like every snail I bought is on my glass heading north. LOL

My water tests fine and the temp is at 78.

Any ideas guys cause some are actually making the tank lip. hehe Not sure what will happen when I go to bed and cant take them down.

I have a similar crew from reefcleaners.org, and they seem to gravitate towards my lights during the day but overnight they all head back down to the substrate. Those are nerites, and they don't need to be babysat. When they get out of the water they will close up, but they will survive (except the one that made it to the floor and got stepped on...). I pick them up from outside surfaces throughout the day, and they slways seem to live.

Those are nerite snails, the only draw backs is they do like to lay eggs which are very hard to remove from the glass and they like to crawl out of the tank. Don't count them out for dead if that happens I just put them in a little tank water and they would start moving around shortly afterwards.

I'm not too sure i like these nerite snails. They are still everywhere. I thought they were sand snails?

It must be the time of the year or something because all my turbos are doing the same thing and they've never done that!!

One was out the water and on the plastic last night, I had to put him back in.

They all spawned around the same time a few weeks back, it could be a 'cycle'?

I think its the dwarf ceriths that are all migrating to the top. I also think the big black ones are the nerites. I only got 4 different kinds of crew lol. Just wish they would stay in the tank...
