Mystery snails

Post by GoingPostal on Tue Oct 29, 2013 11:12 pm

Even more fun I haven't taken a pic yet. Flipped on the tank light late tonight and it's covered in tiny fast moving white snails. WTF? Where did these come from and where have they been hiding? I moved a rock from my 8 gallon to this tank about a week ago but I have moved stuff back and forth many times before this and haven't added anything new for several months. Do have a cyano problem going on right now which is very odd for my tanks. All corals very happy.

Are thefy very very tiny? I had a bloom of some small hard creature. They were a pinhead size. They disappeared gradually. Don't khow where they were from or why they left. I had scraped the majority off. I had a filefish in there at the time. He ate the aptasia, maybe these too.

Yeah they are very small. Turned on the light this morning and couldn't hardly find any so that's weird too.

Maybe they are itty bitty teeny weeny itsy bitsy starfish. I'd say no worries until they are as thick as algae. Heh Heh

Sounds like a bonus either way to me. Snails. Can't think of too many that are bad for the tank. And, if they are gone, you got free food! Smile
