    Bizzarre snails!!

     Last night as I surfed the net I noticed gysers of water coming off of the surface of my tank. I assumed maybe a power head was spraying out of it's air port or some other equipment problem. Upon watching a little closer, I noticed every astrea snail I had (around 75) was at the waterline. I could clearly see that they were the ones firing gysers of water about 4" high. I guess it's some kind of breeding thing. I was a bit worried about my lights. Has anyone else seen this kind of civil unrest?

    Re: Bizzarre snails!!

    Mine have done this periodically before.   They're funny snails that way.  At times, my astreas all gather in one clump for a day or two, then spread out again.  I'm not sure why they do this but they always remain healthy afterwards.  Maybe that'll be my next endeavour to research on.

    The only thing two reef keepers will agree on, is what the third reef keeper is doing wrong!
