Anyone have a nice mix of snails and hermits they are willing to let go? A buck a piece, looking for 15 total... Just can't justify spending 3 bucks for a snail at the LFS. Or anyone know who's got them for a buck each?

I can give you 10 obsoletta, if you want. they have been in my system for over a year and love to eat diatoms and scavenge. Let me know.

Are these the cold water black shelled ones?

they are the black shelled ones, but i don't know about the cold water part. my system usually runs inthe low to mid 80's and i haven't had any issues with them. most of the deaths i've seen are from my copperband when i haven't fed it in a couple days.

I'll ask my buddy, but we'd only be looking for just a couple, we want to get a good mix of different species...

I know most people say they have bad luck with the obsaletta's. I have had over two hundred and I have not seen any empty shells in six months when I got them. For $20 shipped for over 200 I thought was a good deal.

Thanks for the help guy's went over to Exotic tropicals, they had blue leg'd hermits for a buck and snails for not too much more. They didn't have much of anything else, but the store did look lots better for salt water. :) The front coral tank had a few frags and a few nice clams, but not a nice as the price suggested. IMO his prices range from great to not so great depending on what you're looking for. :) We'll see what the next month brings and what Fishy Business brings to the competition...

I'm anxious to see what Fishy brings to the table too...
