    Baby turbo snails? Don't think they are an issue. Looks like they found some algae to eat

    Not sure on baby turbos. I have had none in the tank. It is the ones on my zoa polyps i am more concerned with.

    Maybe collinista, I don't think there sundial snails. Could have gotten turbo babies on live rock. Change the title to snail ID and pagoe joe should chime in.

    This was my original finding from LionfishLair but i wanted other opinions. I was mostly concerned because i saw them crawling all over my zoas and then found one on one of my Montis.

    I appreciate all the responses :)

    I know this is over a month old, however, i feel i need to give you a "Heads up"

    I see in the pix you posted there is also a Vermetid snail. It is the one that looks like a tiny spiral with a stick shooting up. Those are a pain to get rid of and they do become an eye sore since they have a web-like slime they extend to gather food. Look them up and make a choice. It's better to attack while they're few.

    i did have an issue with those a few months back. They have since died back almost to non existence. Someone told me to starve them out on a thread i started back in April. I wonder who that could have been!?!

    :D
