after Cycling my new tank with LR
, I went out and purchased 2 Clowns and 10 margarita snails from Petco (I know I know...I had a giftcard).
Anyway. Clowns are doing great but I've lost a few snails. I find them on their back in the substrate and if I turn them over, they seem to move along only to be on their backs a little while later.
ANYWAY - Last night I took a ride the a "real" LFS
and talked to the reefkeeper. He said I should wait until I start seeing the "Need" for snails before adding them. The fact that they are on their back is most likely the process of them dieing from Starvation. My Tank has NO Visible Algae yet.
