Just an FYI Bumble Bee snails are predators so don't be surprised if some of your other snails go missing.

Ohhh I didn't know that... I don't have any other snails in that tank but there are 5 hermit crabs. The other snails are in the 10g. If I were to put those turbo snails in there... they are like 5x the size of that bumblebee... would they be ok?

Sorry about last night... the laptop and I fell asleep in the living room, LOL!!! Its also a darn good thing Hubby ordered us a new camera, last night when I went to take the pics, every time I pushed the shutter button the camera turned itself off! (and it had fresh batteries right off the charger) So I did the best I could with my cell...

Goby again


Firefish again


Coral Banded Shrimp inside cave




I don't like where I put the top rock in the middle - I'm going to move it when I get a couple more rocks. This darn tank is sooo tall this whole rock setting just looks so frigging short but its really not. I put my base rocks all the way to the glass on the bottom, and 2 of them almost got lost in the sand, LOL.

I think I need 1-2 more large rocks, and several small pieces to hold up a couple of the "cave" tops a little higher...

Thanks!!!!!!!!! :D

i dont think you can ever have to much rock LOL the bonus is if most of yours is LR you can save money by getting Base rock to fill in ;)

Well... base rock @ LFS is $3.50/lb... and I can get LR anytime from that guy I found off Craigslist for $3.50/lb... so I think it will all be LR!! I got lucky finding him. All the darker rocks came from his place.
