Turbo snails

Hi over last two weeks all my turbos are dropping and dying, the only thing that's changed is the temp as it's been really hot here and my tank has reached 82 for few days but have got it down to 78. Could it be the heat or something else.

Well asked the guy at lfs and he said most likely the heat as few people have said their turbos are dying.

Turbo snails

I don't think 82* is going to kill snails, unless it's swinging rapidly from the low 70s. My guess is starvation, turbos can eat a lot of algae, I'd say keep it to 1 or 2 and supplement with a couple smaller snails like ceriths or trochus if needed.
