hey Wolverine,How do I join the group buy
Thanks a lot this is very helpful I emailed them. Actually this will be two 40 breeders so they have a link for that. Since shipping is included in the price would I somehow get a discount for the cost of shipping or would it be better just to wait for a clean up crew sale? Or maybe I should just order hermit crabs now?Hey Cmantis,
John actually has a form on reefcleaners.org to find out just that!
It's the custom clean up crew link. You fill out some info about your tank and what you have (algae issues, phos levels etc) and he'll email you with suggestions.
In lieu of time though (though, since you're on now, maybe you can use it. I think he is on his email around 5am), let's see...
An alternative, what I do sometimes, is I go to see his quick crew packages and look up a tank with my similar dimensions and I make a similar package.
So, 80 g, 48 7/8 x 14 x 30 3/4, I see this on his site:
102 Dwarf Ceriths -
29 Nassarius -
27 Florida Ceriths -
16 Large and 20 Small to Medium Nerites -consumes fine hair algae
Also!! The GB gives us free overnight shipping so you can get hermit crabs that also eat hair algae. I would also get some larger empty shells so that when they grow they have shells to go into instead of beating up your snails.
My hermits, picks up hair algae and puts it into a corner of my tank. Then I just siphon it up, but they do all the real work!
