This is a 90 gal tank.
My nitrate is a lil under 20. My alk is 11 and calcium is 450.

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

Snails and hermits have a tendency to be overused in marine tanks. Start light, maybe a dozen hermits and a few snails. I prefer nassarius snails. They burrow through the sand and get the uneaten food and such. Others prefer Cerith snails. They have a tendency to cling to the glass and rocks. I have a few Turbo snails, but I do not think that you are anywhere needing them.

Nothing good happens fast in an Aquarium
