Over the pasr few months have been getting lots of snail eggs on the glass of the DT (have counted 3 different types so far). Have had eggs before but never seen anything survive (apart from dove snails)

This time though i have found a load of baby turbos in the sump! (Such a proud dad! :'()

Well done, hard work paying off

My nessarius snails keep laying eggs on the glass. Free fish food as none have ever made it. I do find small trochus snails in my sump, but they don’t seem to grow bigger?

That's so coincidental, just tonight, I found what I thought was a spider in my sump, it was speckled brown and had a load of legs just like a spider.
When I looked closely, I realised it was a hermit that didn't have s shell, I put one into the sump, around the size I thought would suit him, and he quickly occupied it.
