    Please let me know exact numbers and of what type of hermit or snail. That will help alot. Thanks
  4. I'm in. I'll figure out the number of each I need tonight. It will be mostly snails to restock my tanks. I have a snail serial killer in my main display and it's time to find him many more victims.

    Are the "red leg hermits" the nice "scarlet hermits" with red legs and a touch of yellow? Or are they like blue legs, but uh, red legged?
  8. Waiting to hear about Trochus till I make my order.

    I think my nitrates are still way too high... too high for snails anyway.

    I was reading about nassarius snails and the note said "sensitive to high nitrates" so ... I'll have to pass.

    This is Bob. He was unfortunately swept away in the undertow and sucked into a life of confinement in the skimmer. He's approximately 1/8" and might have other buddies that he hangs out with in there. He's still awaiting for the next skimmer clean out session to be rescued.

    This is his buddy, who was more fortunately and settled in the tank. He's ~3/8" and seems to be growing extremely quickly.

    Tiger Trochus please.

    yes, shrimps are correct as list. Tiger Trochus wasn't on list, but I guess I can ask.

    for the price listed I think the red ones are like the blues one with red stripes. I would guess the Scarlet Red ones are what you are asking about. Its hard to say since these are sight unseen.
  13. 10 x Nerite
    10 x Cerith
    5 x Nassarius
    5 x Turbo

    FYI - I need to get at least 100 of any certain type of snails or crabs to make an order. Shrimps can be order at any amount. I think I will see what we get by Monday the 13th to see if we have enough. Another option could be maybe we can split an order to Live Aquaria or something.
