Everything in the tank died due to COVID complications.


I caught the rona and was QT in my RV and the people who live in the house I pay for thought that filling the ATO reservoir was optional because after a day or so the return pump stops making noise.

Well eventually they did put water in the ATO reservoir and an hour or so later the return pump started making noise again...at which point she remembered that you can quiet that pump by adding water to the underneath tank (sump).... which primed the pump and filled the tank with 2-3 hrs of kalkwasser that hat accumulated in the sump.

Fish were jumping out of the tank in agony. It was all over rather quickly 90% died within minutes 10% hung on for a week.

I did come up a lot of live rock and calcium reactor media though!



And all my germinated snails and aptasia are dead!

It seems they only go for the small ones but it's possible I just haven't noticed the larger ones being consumed. Regardless, the large vermetids are easy enough to manually remove.

So like I wrote earlier, had a friend with the same experience. I am confirming the same behavior from the bumblebee snails. They do work! Biological control, no need for chemicals, remove them if they become a problem for any other organisms (easy enough). Worth giving them a try and sharing your experience. Note: I added them about two months ago or more. So you have to be patient!


I noticed a few small ones but it was not an issue, until I moved a mushroom rock near some other corals and noticed the sizable nets they were casting. I added 10 Bumblebee snails to my 125 and am curious, is this enough? I put the plyers and screw driver to a few but realize that if a few are visible, there are bound to be more. I've subsequently seen the reports of plagues and I do not want to get to that point. Any advice in regards to the bumble bee snail and the amount I should have in my tank is appreciated.
