    How much purigen in 350G tank?

    Adding 240 Nerite Snails to my tank!

    Lol It surprisingly does not look like there are 240 snails in there. It seems like most of them disappeared but they area still there somewhere. I've noticed they really only come out at night so that is great! At night it looks like a bunch of turds all over the tank.
