Great question.... I think....

I've left numerous posts about my dying turbos and something just occured to me tonight.... the whole time these bad boys have been dropping like flies, I've had this other ??elephant snail?? in the sand and he's been through all the same stuff if not worse..... so any ideas on why the turbos are dropping????? most of them just lay there with their foot exposed and shrivled..... no matter if I flip them over etc... .the just won't attach......

are they the small turbos or the large size mexican turbos? The mexican turbos need a cooler temp. I wasnt sure which ones you were talking about.

That's a pretty good point..... most of the ones dying off are the large ones..... the smaller one's seem to be faring pretty well.... not sure if they're mexicans etc... but it is the larger ones dying.... and my redfoots as well.... also larger.....

Then the next thing to ask would be what your tank temp is......mexican turbos prefer a temp below 78.

Are you having 5+ degree fluctuations every day?
