When should I add a CUC? And what exactly should I add as far as a CUC..and about how big?
This is a 90 gal tank.
My nitrate is a lil under 20. My alk is 11 and calcium is 450.
Now what?

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.
