I saw an article yesterday about a snail that can be found from California to Alaska that is brightly colored yellow and purple. I wish I could find it...something like that would be amazing in a 5g.

I'd add some real pretty hermits and snails too. And a shrimp! Or shrimps if you go with sexy shrimp.

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

Well, I have a margarita, a nerite, and a scarlet red hermit right now... I'm thinking I'll add one more of each of those, plus two Nassarius and two sexy shrimp... Oh and the clown goby. Sound like a good stock?

Yeah, the yellow clown gobys are super cute! I can't wait to get one. I really like the green ones too, but they don't seem to be as active...

Sounds cool! My nerite has some yellow in it and my margarita's shell is covered in purple coralline... Does that count...?

I happen to have a green AND yellow clown goby. The green isnt nearly as active as the yellow one but he has the faintest little red lines near his, very pretty fish. The yellow one is all over the tank and perches everywhere, he really likes my mag float. lol

Took awhile but found it! Jewel top snail. Check it out, pretty cool. Don't think we'd be able to keep it in hindsight...but still amazing.
