    new hermit and snail deaths

    I never had problems with them dying by just adding them to the tank, what I have a problem with is the crabs eating the snails, this happens a lot, watch your crabs don't mess with snails. I would say crabs and snails are very hardy, I would say they do die over time, just seems odd yours died...

    Damsel and Clownfish Question!

    I have 2 of each in my tank and they seem to get along, what I noticed is that the clowns mess each other and the damsel's will mess with each other. I would not put damsel's back in the tank. Try some clown's and Firefish, that seemed to work pretty good for me.

    favourite shrimp and why!!!

    I really like the looks of the fire red shrimp, can't seem to pull the $40 bucks out of my pocket though. I have a cleaner shrimp he's pretty cool to watch, always comes out, does not hide much, I also have 2 camel back shrimp, they don't seem to come out too much.

    I have a quiet 4000 that I used for 2 years and never had issues, still have it. I also just bought a 3000 that I'm running now, and no problems.

    Crabs vs Snails

    I tried this stunt twice, the crabs always tear apart the snails (ever with extra shells lying around), wish I could keep both I like to watch the crabs, but bad luck, snails only tank now.
