I think with 59 snails in a 55 gal you are going to have them everywhere. They are enjoyable to look at and watch and like Marc118 said those cleaner packs for a 55gal tank usually have about 1 per gal. I would try starting with about 1/2 your list and see how you like it. I only have 12 in my 75, and I'm sure with 50+ they would be everywhere, but eventually I plan on around 30.

Yea, I was looking at two possibilityes. Go with thier 50G crew or 30G, so I was trying to judge what would be good.

Thanks all for the helpful input.

I only have 7 turbo snails in mine, thats all the snails I have. The bumble bees you probably wont see much of during the day. Some ofmy turbos move during the day and some just park it on a rock or glass.

All of my turbos are nocturnal and it is rare to see them moving. I would go with more rather than less because there is always the unlucky snail who dies for some reason. HTH

Cool, thanks for all the input. I ended up getting 12 of each of these.
Bumble Bee, Nassarius and Cerith snails. That is just a starter crew, for now. I will order more next month. I kind of want to see if they make it.
