    Yesterday my cleanup crew arrived from Reef Cleaners and I couldn't be more impressed.

    What you see here is the "quick crew" acclimating temp.

    The order called for I think about 20 of these guys... more like 200. ;D

    Here's everything scattered in the sand. The cleaner shrimp decided to try and start eating a few of the Dwarf Ceriths so I ended up burying as many of them as I could in the sand. The turbo snail you see in the bottom right pic wasn't part of the package.

    I figure if the Nerites are already laying eggs that must be a decent sign.

    Thanks to ReefCleaners.org for an excellent product. As you can see this tank needed the help. All of this was under $20 during the %5 off sale. It just wasn't possible for me to find any better deal. Happy customer for sure!

    Well I'm not sure if it was sent out Monday or Tuesday but it was one of the two and it arrived on a Thursday. And that was from FL to CA. For you I would say 2 days probably.

    Yes those are paper towels, it makes sense to have the snails wet and yet not totally submerged in a bag that is sloshing around during shipment. At least that's my take.

    It was just the regular free shipping that comes with the quick crews. Like I said, 2-3 days.

    Was never worried about the tracking number to be honest, but no there was none.

    The paper towel helps to regulate the humidity in the bag, without letting water pool and become stagnant.


    Interesting thing about Nerites....they can tell the time of year I think. You will notice that even if you keep the water temp and all other parameters the same they still only lay eggs during the late spring and summer months. I rarely if ever see eggs in the winter, always there during summer though assuming water quality is high.

    If you have any questions let me know. :)
