A few days back I found pyramid snails on my turbo snails. I would have considered just letting the cycle go through and re stock my cleanup crew in a few months. But I have a maxima clam, and I don't want to replace it. So I started taking out my snails every couple days and scrubbing their shells off to get rid of the pyramid snails. Just today though, for the first time, I saw pyramid snails on the clam. I would just take him out every couple days to scrub him off, but he is attached to a base rock in the tank. What do I do? Is it safe for me to cut him off and scrub him, and not let him reattach for a few weeks until I take care if the snails?
I wonder why tough corals are called hammers, and weak corals are called buttons...
