    They never seem to last that long for me or so it seems. I'm not even sure exactly what it is they eat. Are they strictly herbivores?

    Fairly certain they are. Mine is a "tiger stripe" turbo.. not sure if that means anything or not, but anytime I've mentioned it, folks always seem to settle down their wondering. I've had him six or seven years now. I shuffle him between tanks when I see him and the lights are on, because that is a sign to me that he isn't finding enough to eat.

    Wondering why mine died. Thought for sure there was plenty for him to eat between DT & sump. Can't imagine ever keeping one as long as you have, 6-7yrs wow!
    I don't want to get another because to me they're not disposable and if it's something in my tank well I won't risk it.
    Hermits, Nass, Conch and a lone Spiny Astarea Star are all doing well. I've even got some bumble bee Snails that are like 3-4yrs old from when I first set up my 26g. Turbos just never live very long for me.

    I know they don't do well with higher water temps.... maybe you get a little to warm for them in the summer months?

    I run at 78 also, or that is my target.
    I've seen upper limits stated at 80 though, and I know higher temps are what has been blamed for lack of availability at times.
    Regardless, doesn't seem to apply

    Thank you. It's still hanging in there but seemingly a slow growing kind. Crazier still is I'm able to blow the larger tufts off the rock with a turkey baster and scoop it out with a net. It's definitely a work in progress-lol.

    Ordered a new cuc from reefcleaners. Ordered some GFO from BRS, never used it before hope it helps. Finally picked out a new fish!! An ORA Red Sea mimic Blenny. I'm very excited! First fish in over a year.
