I started a 55 gallon saltwater tank about a month ago. Water conditions are optimal. No trace of nitrate/nitrite/amonia. PH is about 8.6 -8.8 (a little high but im having problems bringing it down with all the rock). I have about 65 lbs of live rock and am using live sand as substrate. Point is... why are my snails dieing??? I have 2 damselfish... 2 clownfish... emerad crabs... hermitcrabs... cleaner shrimp and an anemone... but the snails die. What techniques would u recommend for algae control. Are there any other invertebrates I should add for cleanup assitance?? Thanks for your help!!
