Hey guys and gals. So I've read a few other threads where people have added like a dozen hermits and a dozen snails to their tank while it's cycling. Some successful stories too. Is it ok to do this? What do I need to do to make sure I'm not killing them in the process? My water perimeters look good so far. I have about 30-40 pounds of established live rock, 50 pounds of live sand from a previous reef tank, a good filter, skimmer and uv
sterilizer so I'm sure my cycle will be a little quicker then most. Reason for adding them now is to help with the bb but to also clean up some of the algae in my sand bed and rocks. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
