Great shots of the snail!!!!!!!!!!! Is it a specific type of snail? Love the detail and the stripes you can see on it!

Thanks. The snail in the pic is a Astraea Snail and I have 4 in the tank.

Hehe - we call them Turbo Snails here - so sweet!
I hadn't realised they had very Apply marks on their noses...

1 Scarlet Reef Hermit
1 Small colony of Zoas (15-20 Polyps)

Lovely pics! there is something odd about that shrimp (i could swear the ones at the LFS look different) but i'm guessing that it's just a slightly different colour variation...
How big is that colony? it looks tiny on the first pic, but huge on the third!

I think the shrimp looks like that because of the lighting, it really helps to bring the colours out on it. Great pictures, what colour morph are those Zoos? :D

That is one FUNKAH shrimp!
The colour bands are so clear - very nice!

Yes - what morph are the zoos - they're an unusual colour!

KittyKat: The colony is about 1" in diameter, so yeah it is tiny. There are about 15 maybe 20 polyps.

Kev: The color morph was not labeled at the fish store but from what I can tell they are Eagle Eyes. If you have a different guess I would love to hear it. :D

Yeah the Cleaner shrimp has very bright colors, but the light does make the colors stand out more. I'm thinking of picking up another Cleaner shrimp as they do prefer the company of their own kind.

The tank has been doing great. I added a few more snails to assist with cleaning, and my last fish which is a small Fairy Wrasse. Also added two Mushrooms, and a Capnella coral.
