Should I Worry

Post by Jahdiel » Tue May 24, 2005 10:17 pm

Ok guys I need all the suggestions and info I can get. I noticed I was loosing some of my zoas, and upon closer inspection this evening, I found a crap load of these tiny snails. Could they be the sundial snail, should I worry, and if I should, how do I irradicate them?

Those are not Sundial and not dangerous at all.

Love that avatar Snoop!
Just found a site that talks about them, :? , Collonista, a small, harmless, nocturnal grazer. They are like miniature Turbo snails.
I appreciate your help.

They hide a lot, seem to only come out at night.

I have had them in my tank for over a year. I saw someone selling them on RC a few months ago for a dollar each. I thought at the time that was reduculuse for them. But people were buying them. I thought about selling them my self but never got around to selling them.

That would be a problem for you with that tank. The ones in my tank would not be that hard to get out becuase at night they all come out. Last night I could have gotten about 30 of them just off of the glass. I think you should buy that 55 gal tub from Rich and make that your zoas tank. I is a very nice setup.

It is coming together nicely. I almost have the reacoctor diled in. So if I could leave it in your tank maybe until next weekend. If you don't mind holding on to it until then.
