It's amazing how these snails just pop up out of nowhere. I'm ok with them in some places but sometimes they literally attach to the base of corals.
I unfortunately can't comment much about the lifespan of the Chinese LED
boxes. I got mine used from someone on here who left the hobby. Within a year one of them had a white led
go out and it took out the rest with it. It was still $100s cheaper to buy and replace the LEDs vs buying a more expensive fixture tho
