Well, 300L translates to roughly 50ish gallons...right? Either way you'll need a much larger CUC imo. I like a heavier cuc, but try to fill it with smaller snails/crabs. When you start only seeing a handful of larger ones, it is then time to order more. Atleast how I see it.

What type of CUC would you have?
