i went to a different LFS (not the usal one i go to ) and i asked if they had any turbos?after the guy told me they had a few i asked his opinion on how many he thinks i would need for my 95. Se i thought maybe like 4 or 5 but he told me 20 or 30? so i said ill start with 5 and took five home(well really 4) when i got home and put the snails in the tank a hermit comes crawling out of the sell.Anyway is this right i think 20 or 30 turbos is to many for my size tank

I'd rather have 10-20 Turbos and a mix of other snails like nerites, cerith, astreas, margaritas... but 20-30 is not outrageous if those are the only species of snail you have you might even need to get a few more...

Best of Luck!

I was told once that I needed 1 snail or hermit for every gallon of water. Of course that was the last time I shopped at that store too.

I probably have 30 or so snails in my 92g - all different types and sizes.

Keep in mind that different snails clean different surfaces. Some will focus on rocks, while others stay in the sand, and yet others specialize in glass cleaning.
