    Hey alll

    I'm extremely new at this I've had my tank for almst a month I have already got live rock with 2 false plum anenomes, 3 sargeant majors which I caught locally, a biggish star fish just for character and a sea snail none of the local fish shps can tell me what it is, its pink in colur with a lumo light blue edging ,with a white shell with dark brown lines on it and I have about 3 or 4 normal shrimp running around 2..

    My tank is 60L x 30W x 45H and running a hanging filter no lights as yet but my tank is thriving with out it so far have got pink coroline algae growing on the silicone and on a small bit of the glass as well as a little bit under my shingle.

    If u all have any advice for me or could give me a heads up on anything plz feel free 2 add a comment

    Many thanks in advance

    Fila:)

    Most likely Hydatina physis. Shell looks why too small for the snail. And the shell looks very fragile.

    If it is, it will just die in your tank. They eat spaghetti worms. And you do not have enough to feed it.

    And your tank is way too small for 3 Sergeant Mayors. They will kill one another. Until you got one left.
