Turbo snails eating cyano...

I'm actually pleasantly surprised but is the cyano bacteria going to hurt my trustworthy cleaning crew?

I guess it is possible that they are eating it.

I doubt it will have an impact on them.

Hmmm, they do like algae, not too sure about them eating bacteria. Are you sure they are just not plowing through it?

I'm not too surprised, my cerith snails eat at it a bit too. There are a few snails that are said to consume cyano (strombus, nerite...). I wouldn't be concerned about thier health because of it.

Nope I thought they were plowing too. They are definetly sitting on it and eating it.
