I have a big snail like that. Giant green star snail is what I have. It is awesome to see him in action. An algae eating machine.

He's a tequila snail covered in coralline his shell at the bottom of the cone is about an inch and a half. And yes he's an algae machine. Between him and the turbo snail(which is huge too) I have no other need for snails except in the refug. They are vacuums they clean the glass so quick they move to the rock and will tip over 2lb pieces! Can't get a good shot with the actinics on.

Here's some daytime shots

I dropped one bulb the other day and broke it. I'm planning on replacing the retro with led but only 1 at a time for the moment. I'll start with the center one considering that's the broken bulb.

I would ultimately like to get the xr30s from ecotech but that's out of my price range for now.

So these are what I'm thinking in the mean time.

I'm pretty sure theyre the same as the ones mr x uses but dimmable.

Got some new corals yesterday and today also found out that my naso tang likes to bite fingers and I can touch him without him freaking out! I have never had that experience before

Everything looks awesome - like the new scape!

As for the sun coral - you will have to target feed each individual polyp all the time to make sure it lives. You'll probably want to try to train it to open during the day. Otherwise it'll only open at night at starve. It's a non-photosynthetic coral, meaning it doesn't get food from the sun.

Lol isn't the name ironic even though it looks like one.

If you stay on it you can make them thrive. I have one in my tank. He opens up at every feeding. I just feed slow. Like over course of hour. One squirt in with time in between. Sun will open up after a few. From Time to time if fish snag all his food a lot I can move to refugium for re coupe.
