I too am a Bumble Bee fan. However they spend almost all of their tome on the LR and LS. Turbos are cheap for a reason. They are too big and they can't right themselves either. Like 24 hrs? said, they make great Blue leg food. The turbos are great for the glass though, just need to replace them often. I've had one individual in my tank for six mos. but have replaced 10 others. Definately need to get them out of the tank if they die, unless you have some scavengers.

My Turbos keep getting sucked into the PHs. I keep pulling them out, thinking they'll be dead, but they always manage to live through it.

I have four, which I know is too many for my small tank, but that's how many came with my crew package (along with nerites, ceriths and nassarius). They've done an amazing job cleaning the tank. I guess a few will die along the way.

I also have one Bumblebee who came on my LR. He always easily spotable with those stripes.

General rule of thumb is one per gallon. I guess one cool thing about turbos, is the tend to grow coralline on their shells. Looks like a moving piece of LR.
