there are several types of nerite snails too. When I get nerite snails I put them in a 10g tank overnight to see which ones stay in the water and which ones climb up and or out of the tank.

They hang there till lights out then do the dirty deed. Some do have a habit of climbing out. IMO you're CUC is on the high side. As good dwindles so will they, as they will if you have any predators in the tank.

I'm glad I only bought the clean up crew pack for a 25 gallon! lol

I caught my goby eating a tiny snail the other day, is that normal? How long does a cuc generally last? I dont think theres any predators to them in the tank really.

They look like turbos - ones on glass. They will start to move all over the tank - glass, lr, p skimmer, heater, p head Mine have been on the move ever since day one. Only have 3 t snails in my 40 They don't really stay one spot - which I'm guessing is good, more cleaning. I have cut down on cleaning my glasss with that magnetic cleaner - figured I'm scraping off what they should be eating/cleaning. Do you clean ur glass often with magnetic scraper?

Carey, Im not sure if it was already mentioned, but hermit crabs kill and eat snails for their shells. So it's a good idea to put in extra shells
