 Great.  I  have  been  in  search  for  them  for  sometime  now.  Do  you  have  any  other  marine  snails  or  inverts?

 Hi,
 Details  regarding  each  variety  from  the  Lfs  section  is  put  up  below  so  that  it  may  help  you  to  search  on  Google  &  also  decide  what  you  would  like  to  keep  in  your  aquarium.
 
 Clean  up  crew:
 
 Red  Hermit  crab  Chibanarius  digueti  Sp  is  safe  to  introduce  with  other  inverts  &  corals.  Will  not  harm  tube  worms,  zoa's  etc.  Will  need  empty  shells  to  change  into  as  they  grow.  They  do  not  exceed  2  inches  in  size.  Feeding  mainly  on  brown  algae,  slime  algae,  detritus  &  uneaten  fish  food.  Supplementary  feeding  will  need  to  be  done  with  fish  feed,  algae  wafers  etc  if  its  natural  food  gets  completely  depleted  in  the  tank.
 
 Green  Hermit  crab  Chibanarius  vittatus  Sp  is  safe  to  introduce  with  other  inverts  &  corals  till  they  reach  a  size  of  1.5  inches.  They  also  feed  on  slime  algae,  brown  algae,  detritus,  hair  algae  &  uneaten  fish  food.  They  reach  a  maximum  size  of  3.5  inch  to  4  inch.  They  also  do  not  harm  corals  &  other  inverts  directly.  Their  size  may  cause  will  cause  them  to  puncture  coral  tissue  if  they  walk  on  corals  causing  secondary  infections.  Hence  the  are  not  really  suited  in  a  reef  set  up  beyond  1.5  inch  size.
 
 Glass  shrimp  Palaemonetes  vulgaris  is  safe  to  introduce  with  other  inverts  &  corals.  They  are  constant  foragers.  These  will  feed  on  detritus,  green  slime  algae,  uneaten  fish  food,  etc.  They  breed  constantly  in  the  aquarium.  Size  remains  in  the  range  of  1  inch  to  1.5  inch.
 
 Turbo  snail  Astrea  Sp  doesn't  need  much  introduction.  Still  the  snail  is  a  herbivore  foraging  on  brown  algae,  green  slime  algae,  uneaten  fish  food,  etc.  The  variety  in  constant  supply  doesn't  grow  beyond  1.5  inch.
 
 Nerite  snail  Neritidae  Sp  are  snails  that  have  a  circular  shell.  These  feed  on  the  nuisance  algae  varieties  like  brown,  green  slime,  red  slime  etc.  They  don't  take  much  interest  in  the  hair  algae  though.
 
 Cerith  snail  Cerithium  Sp  are  the  snails  that  have  shells  in  the  spiral  shape.  Like  miniature  inverted  ice  cream  cones.  These  are  the  true  masters  of  the  cleaning  act.  They  are  also  excellent  burrowers  like  the  nassarius  snails.  Apart  from  hair  algae  they  will  eat  diatom  brown  algae,  slime  algae  green  &  red,  detritus  &  uneaten  fish  food.  They  constantly  lay  eggs  in  the  aquarium  &  before  long  you  will  see  smaller  miniature  versions  in  the  aquarium.
 
 The  clean  up  crew  should  be  fed  in  an  aquarium  only  if  their  natural  food  is  totally  depleted.
 
 Macro  Algae:  Are  used  to  reduce  your  nitrate  &  phosphate  levels  naturally.
 
 Green  carpet  algae  Codiaceae  also  known  as  maidens  hair  algae  is  meant  to  be  tied  to  a  piece  of  rock  &  placed  in  a  slow  steady  flow  area  of  the  refugium  with  moderate  lighting  or  in  the  main  display  tank.  Do  not  place  the  algae  where  it  will  touch  any  corals  or  where  coral  polyp  extension  may  touch  the  algae.  The  algae  is  usually  left  alone  by  most  herbivore  fish  such  as  surgeons  etc.  If  you  have  a  Fox  face  it  will  definitely  eat  it.  Propagation  is  by   vegetative  process  as  well  as  sexual  means.  Maintain  your  magnesium  &  iron  levels  if  you  want  to  maintain  this  algae  in  pristine  condition.
 
 Red  algae  Gracilaria  variety  is  the  maroon,  red  algae  that  grows  in  fronds.  Easily  attached  to  rocks  by  using,  thread,  super  glue  varieties  or  simply  by  wedging  it  in  between  rocks.  Lighting  should  be  low  to  moderate  with  steady  water  flow.  Propagation  is  by   vegetative  process.  Maintain  your  magnesium  &  iron  levels  if  you  want  to  maintain  this  algae  in  pristine  condition.
 
 Grey  Mangrove  plant  Avicenna  marina  Sp  is  a  good  plant  to  set  up  in  a  small  refugium.  You  will  need  to  keep  it  trimmed  like  a  bonsai  plant.  Trim  it  only  when  it  has  no  further  vertical  space  to  grow  in  your  refugium.  Trimming  should  be  done  by  cutting  off  the  apex  leaf  of  the  vertical  growth.  The  leaves  will  need  to  be  sprayed  with  fresh  water  to  get  rid  of  the  extra  salt  that  the  plant  gives  off.  Moderate  lighting  should  be  the  enough.  A  common  cfl  tube  or  a  small  T5  should  be  enough  lighting.  Maintain  your  magnesium  &  iron  levels  if  you  want  to  maintain  the  mangrove  plant  for  a  very  long  time.
 
 
 Red  Mangrove  seed  Rhizophora  Sp.  The  seed  size  of  the  red  mangrove  is  what  usually  dictates  where  it  will  be  placed,  in  a  special  refugium  or  directly  in  the  display  tank.  The  red  mangrove  plants  have  seeds  ranging  from  2  inches  to  24  inches  (personal  seen  it).  You  will  need  to  keep  it  trimmed  like  a  bonsai  plant.  Trim  it  only  when  it  has  no  further  vertical  space  to  grow  in  your  refugium.  Trimming  should  be  done  by  cutting  off  the  apex  leaf  of  the  vertical  growth.  The  leaves  will  need  to  be  sprayed  with  fresh  water  to  get  rid  of  the  extra  salt  that  the  plant  gives  off.  Moderate  lighting  should  be  the  enough.  A  common  cfl  tube  or  a  small  T5  should  be  enough  lighting.  Maintain  your  magnesium  &  iron  levels  if  you  want  to  maintain  the  mangrove  plant  for  a  very  long  time.
 
 Moderators  please  excuse  if  this  post  violates  any  rules.  If  it  does  do  remove  it.

 Thanks  for  the  comprehensive  explanation.  I  have  a  few  question,  i  hope  you  wont  mind.
   
 For  a  100  gallon  tank  what  would  be  the  most  appropriate  number  of  snails  and  hermits  out  of  the  marine  clean  up  crew  that  you  offer?  
 
 
 The  following  are  available  &  can  be  sent  anywhere  in  India.
 
 Clean  up  crew:
 Red  Hermit  crab.
 Green  Hermit  crab.   
 Glass  shrimp.
 Turbo  snail.
 Nerite  snail.   
 Cerith  snail.
 
 Macro  Algae:
 Green  carpet  algae  4inch  square.
 Red  algae  1  clump.
 Grey  Mangrove  plant  minimum  12inch.
 Red  Mangrove  plant  seed  4inch  to  6  inch.
 
 
 Do  the  glass  shrimp  breed  successfully?  Do  they  multiple  like  mysid  and  copepods  or  they  just  lay  eggs  which  get  eaten  by  the  fishes?

 Hello,
 
 I  live  in  Delhi  and  I  have  been  in  search  of  snails  for  the  past  6  months  and  nobody  has  them.
 
 I  have  a  225  gallon  FOWLR  and  am  looking  for  the  following  snails:
 
 Turbo  snails
 
 Cerith  snails
 
 Nassarius  snails
 
 And  looking  at  my  tank  volume,  I  would  be  requring  lots  of  them...
 
 Can  anyone  please  tell  me  where  can  I  find  LFS  in  Delhi  which  keeps  them  or  anyone  who  might  have  them?
 
 Let  me  know  please,
 
 Thanks
