How many do you need?
The number of Bumble Bee Snails that should be added to a reef aquarium depends on the size of the tank and the number of inhabitants. A general rule of thumb is to have one snail per 5 to 10 gallons of water. However, this number may vary depending on the specific conditions and inhabitants of the tank.
- For a small reef tank (5-20 gallons), 1-2 Bumble Bee Snails would be a good starting point.
- For a medium reef tank (20-50 gallons), 2-4 Bumble Bee Snails would be a good starting point.
- For a large reef tank (50-100 gallons), 4-8 Bumble Bee Snails would be a good starting point.
- For an extra-large reef tank (100+ gallons), 8+ Bumble Bee Snails would be a good starting point.
It's always a good idea to monitor the behavior of the snails and the conditions of the tank after adding them, to make sure that the tank's inhabitants are compatible and the tank's conditions are suitable.
