    MarsAqua led 300w custom.

    First off I have had this 80 gallon or 81 set up for about 3 months with great success. Everything seems to flourish in the tank and I believe everything is happy.

    Wanting a good glass cleaning snail.

    I have a huge snail or at least seems big to me. I am unsure what type of snail he is but he only moves around about once a week.[/URL][/IMG] Anyhow I am looking to buy a few snails that are a little more active and will clean the glass. My tank is 80 gallons if that helps any. Thanks
