I did look it up, and I just wasn't sure if I should add more clean up crew, or if what I had was enough for the tank. Its a 125G and I hear that I should have 15-20 of the snails, but I guess I can just cut back on the lighting for now and see how that goes.

I have 20 turbos in my 120 and they do a nice job cleaning up the rocks.

How big is a turbo snail compared to a catseye? Are they the same?

In my opinion You need more snails. You may have to many hermits . By the way "what is a mini hermit crab? My 89g total with sump has three hermits and 100 + Pipipi snails (hawaiian black nerite snails).

I don't know the exact name of the hermits, but I know that right now they are the size of a dime, and according to the label that was with them, they get no larger then a nickle. I will see if I can get the exact name of them later on when I go back up to "That Fish Place" and I will post their correct name.
