View Full Version : small mollusks and overflows/pumps

01/27/2016, 02:31 PM
I have a small invert quarantine tank that is full of small snails about 1.5/16th of an inch in diameter and a bunch of stomatella snails that are only an inch long. I started with dead rock and I currently don't have anything the size of these guys in the display and so I was thinking of adding them but I was wondering if I need to worry about them getting into my vortech or pumps or clogging my overflow pipe at the flow restrictor.

I'm sure anyone who has used live rock has these critters so I'm just wondering if these guys were more hassle than their benefits. This is my first sumped system. Thanks!
