Look for the mexican turbos. kinda silverish and smaller than just plain turbos (w/the big poop). Got an LFS nearby?

I keep my water (fresh and salt mix) in 44g NEW trashcans with wheels dollys attached on'm.
Yes, I've got about 2 LFS with large selections of fish.
OK I'll start with 6 mexican turbos and 6 nassarius. Now they don't require any special lighting do they? I havn't purchased any VHO, or T-5 lighting yet, plaining on as soon as I make a decision on what to go with.

T-5 is HO lighting...I think. I just bought one and love it. I think it migh be contributing to my cyano outbreak, but I'm working on it.

I don't think any of those snails really need any special lighting.

Where do you live, if you don't mind me asking? I have one small LFS where I live, but they seem to keep a good variety and pricey stuff...

I live in Phoenix, AZ
There's Ocean Floor that's about 17,000sqf store, the other is called AquaTouch.
Ocean Floor has your sales people and AquaTouch has the guys that seem to know what there doing. But both places have a really good verity of Fish, inverts, etc.....
Of course costly...
And then of couse there's Petco which is good if you want sick fish.

Thats about the only thing I miss about not being in Anaheim,CA ...There was a internet/LFS supply warehouse (forgot name now darnit!!!) about 20 mins from me that had huge stocks and cheap prices!!... They had a tank of LR that they sold for around $1.50 lb and was mostly made up of frags and rocks that had corals that had died off or where going so they couldnt sell em as nice pieces so would chuck em in there...Used to find some nice stuff in there!

Now I'm in Florida which you would think would have LFS's like 7-11's since the state is surrounded by ocean on 3 sides!! but I havent seen to many here in cent. Fl.

Wow thats amazing, you would think Florida would have LFS everywhere.
Man I wish I could find LR for 1.50lb. everywhere I go it's about 4.50lb and thats the cheap stuff.


Well, I added snails and a cleaner shrimp yesterday, they seem to be doing real good today. Unfortunitly I had my CLown fish sucked into my powerhead and ofcouse he is dead, didn't notice it tell the next day. Made an adjustment to my powerhead so it shouldn't happen again. I've had freshwater tanks for about 5 years, salt water tanks are much more interesting.
I've got little white things running around under rocks and shells, there about 1/16 of an inch and I also noticed what look like the same thing but it was about 1/4inch. I wish I could explaine or show you what they look like but there fast. I'm thinking shrimp or baby hermit crabs. Don't know.
