Does anyone know what this white stuff is??? Tiny white spots. Pretty strange :nerner: I hope it's not the "silent death" I had in my first tank all over again.

I brought the Neritina pulligera back to the store. They didn't like the brackish all too much. Got Clithon diadema/corono instead. Let's see if they like it. :grin:

How can you tell they didn’t like brackish water?

They wanted to flee out of the water and didn't move anymore. After I put them back into regular water the moved around again. They did't seem "happy" to me.

How long did you give them in the water?

Does it come away from the rocks easily?

I did a 3 day fade from freshwater to brackish and then put them into the tank. I let them there for about two days.
