    Hello all, this is my first post on the forum!
    I first started my tank about 5 months ago with 3 trochus snails and now have about a hundred or more.
    Is anyone interested in some? Thought I could give a couple dozen away to people interested or maybe trade for frags???
    I'm in Oakland chinatown.

    That's great news for you. I get my cerith snails to breed all the time, but I've never seen my trochus breed.

    When one spawns they all spawn. Crawl up high and let loose. Both times mine spawned, I had a rapid change in pH. First when I started pH scrubber and my pH increased 0.4. And second when I removed all the fish from my tank to run it fallow and my pH jumped 0.3. I changed nothing else, and within several days the spawn happened.

    Actually if you've ever watched them they smoke heavily during the mating. True story.

    In that case, I'm putting a pack of Marlboro in my tank tonight, play some Barry White, turn down the lights and hope for the best!

    I wasn't happy when they did it in my small frag tank. It caused tons of problems. :)
