If the alg is gone what do youbdo with the cuc ? Throw it away or something
kxracer704 - 3 years ago
Introducing the correct amount of inverts for your CUC will allow them to live in the tank for many years. This will allow them to clean up the algae bloom that is currently there and then simply maintain the algae to a minimum in a well balanced reef aquarium.

not to burst your bubble (pun intended), but i dont believe that any of them eat that hair algae.... get an emerald crab for that.

4 turbos is too many. I personally wouldnt put any turbos in a ten gal. They get too big. The additional seriths would be fine though. Replace your turbos with astreas (3-4).

I have 4 turbo snails, 4 Nassarius snails and 1 cleaning shrimp in 10 gallon. Is that too much? I was thinking to include 2 cerith snail as well? or is that a bad idea..

how long did you wait til you got CUC? did you wait til there's alot of algae?

obviously never taken an invertebrate biology class. they have extremely sensitive circulatory systems, and are very subject to osmotic shock.

My clean up crew is 6 blue legged hermit crabs and 14 snail. In particular I have 1 zebra, 3 trochus, 1 pyramido, 3 mexican, one cerith, 4 snorkel and 2 red banded. They all get along pretty well.
TikiTak321 - 8 years ago
Very true.
TikiTak321 - 8 years ago
No, no need to acclimate snails. They can survive almost all conditions.
TikiTak321 - 8 years ago
To be honest, snails do not need to be acclimated. They are very hardy, unlike fish. Snails are pests and will survive and breed in even the harshest environments. I found a few snails living my pipes for years.

Bumble bee snails are slower than most snails (I learned that from expeiriance)

how much does the tank u have cost to buy and take care of
vinnyCPdragon - 9 years ago
=O eh, i don't think that is a copepod. i think what you have there is an amphipod on crack...giant reef roach, and that one looks albino xD keep it, they are parasitic though.
Powerman2442 - 9 years ago
@ExopMan It's not about the cost it's about giving the animals proper care, noob.

@hieunguyen17 you cant do this i tried even thought this isnt my vid

this might be a stupid question, but i'm new. my power head doesn't come for another three weeks, so i was wondering if i could mix my salt mix and water with a canister filter and just take all of the filtering layers out, so it'll just circulate
50CalPaintballSniper - 9 years ago
I know this is unrelated but I don't know how many people will agree with me... But when aquarium store employees write on the bag with permanent marker.... it forces me to remove them specimens from the bag and change my acclimation process. Thats toxic to the tank. awesome biocube... super jealous

Which Tank Is That You Are Using?
Tempdoom - 9 years ago
@ExopMan i think he doesnt want them to die. its not about the money, they dont deserve to die because someone is irresponsible and cant wait half an hour to acclimate their snails.
ExopMan - 9 years ago
wow, ur a noob lol, full on drip acclimation for dome $2 snails, unnecessary

You should set them on the rocks cause snails cant grip sand
kxracer704 - 9 years ago
@igotyoubeat yes the hermits sometimes do go after the snails for the shells. thats why you should always throw in some extra empty shells for the hermits

The hermit crabs will not mess with the shrimp. I have had my hermit crabs try to attack the snails once so they could take the shell. One did manage to kill my snail and take the shell

Nice tank! Is it a ten gallon? I have a new five gallon that I set up a few months ago. I'm ready to add a clean up crew to it now. I'm getting all my creatures from the wild, about a 2 and a half hour drive one way from my home. At 2:54 in the video on the right side if the tank I see you have a bit of red slime algae growing. For sure those critters will take care of it.
