I know I'm a little late, but I didn't know nassarius snails didn't eat diatoms, thanks for the correction! Sounds like a good cuc.

I just think they're so cool. I love watching them pop out of the sand when I feed! Lol.

Sooo... Went to this LFS and ended up with a few new inhabitants for the tank... A Margarita snail, nerite snail, scarlet hermit, a torch coral, green candy cane, and a zoa. Not sure of the name of the zoa, an ID would be nice... I also brought home an Astraea snail, Nassarius, and a second type of hermit, but I believe they died during acclimation. Not positive about the snails, they haven't moved... And the hermit was for sure dead. I shook him out and left the shell in the tank... Whew, what an episode! Everything is doing okay except the candy cane is still closed, not sure what the deal is... Help! Haha
