New Nassarius Snails and Wrasse
I ordered a bunch of Nassarius snails online and they were delivered last night. I was told the best way to acclimate them is to put them in a separate bucker of tank water with an air stone and wait for them to start moving around and then add them one at a time as they become active. That part all went well.
After dropping them into my tank my Radiant Wrasse (Halichoeres iridis) went crazy. I thought this wrasse was reef safe but he began attacking every snail that he could find. It seems that he was biting off the tip of each snails' snout. He continued to do this to every snail he found.
Now, all the snails are alive and moving around, but their snouts are all shorter than before. Is this ok? Will they still survive and be efficient at cleaning the tank? What was my wrasse doing? Any insight would be appreciated.
