    Hi Everyone,

    I have the following CUC:

    Electric blu hermit
    Red leg Hermit
    Turbo Snail X 2
    Fire shrimp
    And this guy? Think he is a Nassarus snail?

    My question is this. my DT volume is around 280L. Its 1500x500x448, How big should my CUC be?

    So far none of the CUC eat the left over pellets on the sandbed. My two chromis and clown only go for them as the are falling and thats it. Once they hit hte sand bed its just there. I also have a Bluce Cheeck Blenny and he doesnt eat them either. What should I maybe get to solve this problem?

    That's a strombus snail. Also called a conch.

    That is a Strombidae snail
    Detritus feeders.

    Be careful when handling them as they can cut you open easily.

    As far as the leftover pellets go. Feed less.
