    I have a ton of baby trochus snails sucking up my alk. I don't know exactly how many, but there's gotta be at least 200. They're everywhere in the DT and sump and they're likely to starve soon enough with the amount that I have. They need to go.

    If you're interested in some free snails, here's what I'm going to do.

    Since I don't know exactly how many there are, I'm gonna give three members 20-25 snails to start. After that, if there's more I'll have a second round.

    - you must be a supporting member
    - if interested, please say so in this thread by midnight tonight
    - I will randomly draw three names if there are more than three people interested
    - pickup will be in Castro Valley
    - please bring your own container, bag, or bucket

    Varies....None bigger than dime size. Some much smaller.

    Huge waste to feed these to anything. Bar none the best all around algae grazer out there.

    haha, was mostly a joke since my not reef safe wrasse tank has no clean up crew. would be ideal to graze but also possibility of the wrasses.

    Get some Mexican turbos in there instead. Much bigger with tougher shells. ;)

    I sat down and actually counted at least a hundred just on the glass last night, so I'm assuming there's probably at least that amount everywhere else.'re all winners!

    @ashburn2k Are you going to CFM, I might just drop the rest of the snails off there. Trying to get rid of these guys because they keep making me adjust my calcium reactor drip rate every 2-3 days.

    I'll be around this most of the day today and pretty much all weekend. PM for pickup details.

    Not able to make it to CFM, I will just pick up whatever’s left over in Aug 1st.
