    why are my zoo's disapeering

    i had a rock full of them about 2 weeks ago..
    now.. 3 left.. current ? water ? something eating them ?

    i already lost the battle, but just wondering what went wrong.
    its too bad.. cauz those little guys were real nice when they were there...all big and shiny orange.

    Look for a small cone shapped snail... this has happened to me before and I lost 90% of the zoo's on a rock before figuring it out.

    I'll see if I can find a link to them... if Tang_man doesn't beat me to it :

    i found 4 snails under the rock.. but they are the good kind.
    the one i bought from you Ivan.. you know the transparent shell ones that come out at night only. so.. no evil in sight.. i've moved the rock on the sand.. i'll see if i can spot the critters.
