Hi just a thought but remember that a CUC is exactly that a CUC,so only give them the occasional treat or they will not do their work properly! Also with hermits give them plenty of shells so they can move house or upgrade or they have been to known to 'attack' turbo snails for there shells

I had hermits kill some of my margarita snails because it outgrew its shell. I ordered new shells and...they were all way to small for him. Into my sump he went. But I have die off from my CUC all the time...only to be cleaned up. Die off of them really isn't that big of a deal unless there is a shrimp or crab that you really like or can't live without. I have a giant green starsnail that is freaking awesome. He is an inch wide and is an algae eating machine. He has even had snails eating off of his shell as he slowly trucks along.
