I did get me a normal live rock that likes it best in 25C to 28C.

After monitoring the Rough periwinkle, I have dedicated to remove them and replace them with some other types of snail. They are good in a tank. But the problem that I have with them are they are really helpless when they fall on there backs, they also like to hang around in the top of the tank. That also creates issues as it is there most common way to die high up in the tank when they get hit by something or get lost on the floor.

It would be nice to hear what comes out of the live rock in the future!

Also of course what snails you will have.

I am going to add more live rock in the future, two kg at the time. I hope. I am going to get me some warm sea snails, that like to stay on the bottom of the tank. I have removed most of the Rough periwinkle, but there are still few that remains in my tank at the moment. I will just remove them when they get older.

Cool!

Perhaps I will also buy a little live rock, but I will keep my temperature.

I can tell you that abalone, a "primitive" kind of snail, are very cool in my opinion! But there are lots of cool salt water snails!

My salt water tank is doing good. I don't have any major problems, but I have a problem with too much brown algae in it. As it is breaking down, it makes my tank smell a little.

My salt water snails are doing good. The sea water is clean and appears to be good. But there isn't much bio-load on it at the moment.
