These stars are not found in areas containing corals or polyps of any kind. These stars are collected on sandy/rocky grass flats. They are likely detrivores. We have received a report that although they are basically reef safe they have nibbled on a particular small polyp stony coral.

The vibex will stay buried and come out when they "smell" food; stirring the sand bed. It has been my experience that the "obs" do not eat much (if any) slime algae. Astrea and Turbans are a nice combination to keep your glass clean. I have never had a problem with Astreas righting themselves.

Our pods are shipped in medium bags with a small piece of macro algae for transport. Most of the pods will be clinging to this macro algae on arrival. If you look at the plant closely you will see tiny mud tubes. These tubes are amphipod homes. To assure yourself of the number of pods you have received, take the macro algae in hand and pull it apart. You should see numerous pods burried deeply within the macro. To add the pods to your aquarium or refugium, place the entire macro clump to the tank. If you wish to, you may remove the plant clump after 24 hrs.. The pods will have left the macro in search of a new home in your aquarium.

Live Keys Sand
Why Aragonite? Aragonite sand breaks down into calcium carbonate when your aquarium pH drops below 8.2. Calcium carbonate is a buffer to stabilize your pH.

Our sand has the added benefit of being live sand. It contains beneficial bacteria and tiny worms. Great for seeding new tanks, refugiums, or just boosting your current system. For example, 3-4 pounds will seed a 55 gallon tank.

Algae Control Cleaning Crew
Just need help keeping your glass free of algae? This package contains Chestnut turban, Astrea tecta, Virgin Nerite and Cerith snails. They want to clean all that slime algae off your your glass and keep it clean so that you'll never have to! They are also good for eating various other kinds of nuisance algae: cyanobacteria (red/brown slime), diatoms (brown powdery) and filamentous. A few notes:

We believe that the Turbans have the bigger appitite. Regarding the Astreas, we get many calls asking if they will fall off the glass and die. We have never witnessed one of ours doing so. We believe that a tank can experience a "Red Tide" type algae which will cause the Astreas to become sick and eventually die. ... Virgin nerites will stay fairly small. They are also quite beautiful. False cerith snails will help with detritus in addition to cleaning glass.


Large package:

  • 24 Astrea snails
  • 12 Turban snails
  • 12 False Cerith snails.

Refugium Booster Macros


This Algae-Only Booster Package is great for starting smaller refugiums or for "adding life" to an existing refugium.

Perhaps the most important role of Caulerpa in the aquarium is to assimilate nitrogenous compounds and phosphates. Ammonia and nitrate are the most common sources of nitrogen. This is the basis of an algae scrubber. Algae uses these nutrients from the water to anobolize proteins. The result is cleaner water! Algae also offers a favorable environment for fish and an important food source for many. Microfauna, which live among the algae metabolize food particles left uneaten by fish. This enhances the food chain. For example, Mandarin fish will live off these microfauna. Microfauna not included with this package.

Sm. Package contains:

1 Chaetomorpha(baseball size)
1/2 portion Gracilaria(3"x4")

Small Package: $15.00

Lg. Package contains:

2 Chaetomorpha(2 baseball size)
1 portion Gracilaria(6"x8")

Orange Turban Snails
Orange Turban snails do very much the same task as the Chestnut turban snails. They will consume filamentous algae, diatoms, and cyanobacteria. They are usually found in areas of lower light levels. They are very active and consume a TON of algae! These snails vary in size from the size of a marble to about 3/4 ".

Rock Snails

$.95/ea.

These snails are collected from rocky shorelines. This snail is reported to be a carnivore, eating small sessile crustaceans and other smaller snails. We house them in with hermit crabs and snails of equal or larger size with no difficulty. These snails would be useful in fish only aquariums with messy eaters. These snails would help clean up excess shrimp or crab waste.
Nassarius Obsoletus

$.75/ea.

These snails are larger than their cousins the vibex. You will not need as many of these snails because they eat more and are much more active than the vibex. They do bury themselves in the substrate, just not as much. THEY EAT A LOT! They also come from more temperate waters(North and South Carolina). They will do well in reef aquariums, but may have a slightly shortened life span in tropical warm water.

 

Keyhole Limpets

$2.49/ea.

Keyhole limpets are a favorite snail for seahorse keepers. The Limpets will feed on Hydroids as well as nearly any kind of nuisance algae in your aquarium. These limpets are anywhere from 1/4" to 1.5" in length when we sell them. They can obtain a length of 2".

Apple Murex Snails

$1.50/ea.
The Apple Murex as well as other types of Murex snails eat other snails. We have found they do not eat all types of snails. They seem to prefer Astreas and Turbo snails. They do not eat the Rock snails or each other. They are fascinating to watch and will lay their eggs just above the water line in your tank. It is unlikely they will hatch out.

Keyhole Limpets

These Keyhole limpets are excellent algae eaters. These are the only snails I've seen that will continually consume cyanobacteria. We have had several customers purchase these limpets to control hydroides in their seahorse tanks. These limpets range in size from pea size to nickle size.

 

$2.00/ea.

 

False Cerith Snails
Our False Cerith snails are found in the Keys. They will spend time on your substrate nibbling on detritus, or they will be found crawling up the glass or plants and rocks searching for algae. It is reported that they will consume diatoms. They are very small so it takes quite a few of them to put a dent in rapidly growing algae outbreaks. They make excellent nano inhabitants.

Each snail = .50 cents

Coraline Algae Clusters
These clusters make excellent hiding places for micro stars or pods and may help to seed your aquarium with desired coraline algae. Clusters are delicate: hard and brittle. They range in size from a half dollar to ping pong ball. These are collected in shallow water with fairly strong current and lots of bright sunlight. They would probably grow best in aquariums with metal halide lighting and a strong current.

Ghost Shrimp
These shrimp are an excellent food source for just about everything you have. These are saltwater shrimp and will live and reproduce in saltwater. Many of these shrimp collected are carrying hundreds of eggs beneath their abdomens. These shrimp are not prolific breeders though. The baby shrimp feed tiny seahorses and manderine fish. The adult shrimp are excellent food for Marine Bettas or Anthias. They are used best to feed large fish as they do consume a lot of pods.. During the summer months these shrimp are shipped with cold packs. That's right; cold is better than heat.

We may require extra shipping money for orders of more than 50 as water is heavy.
