The simple 50 would work great for you, and the price is hard to beat.

Wow, Michael. How many snails died and what size tank was that?

I have not had a problem with snails, just killer hermits...

150 gallon. All of them died by time I got up that morning, I assume it was a chain reaction. It is hard to explain a entire tank crash. I felt sick.

Once they are dead, they need to be removed from the tank immediately. If you cannot tell when they are dead that makes it a bad thing.
That's exactly the hard part... since we are not 100% sure they are dead, my husband is sticking his hands in there and moving the snails around. The LFS guy said take them out and smell them. If they are dead, they will be smelly and soft.

If they get flipped on their backs, should we be flipping them over? I just think it is not good for my husband to be putting his hands in there so often If nothing else, it probably freaks out the clowns, right?

I'm waiting to see which of my new snails survived. I drip acclimated for 3 hours yesterday. The snails seemed active last night except for the fighting conch. I'm hoping that they are ok when I get home. I did have one tiny cleaner shrimp show up dead.

I'm surprised at how many critters are needed for clean-up. Tomorrow, I am introducing some Sand Sifting Starfish and I will introduce a 'bunch' more snails. They say that Gobis are a good choice too (for sand).

A dead snail wouldn't last 3 minutes in my tank as it would be devoured by hermits, and every imaginable type of worm or crab.
