    So I did a water change on my 100g reef, water was a little warmer than the tank water. and the Collonista snails all gathered on the highest rock with the most flow and just started squirting out eggs and sperm! Then the turbos and margarita snails joined in! I turned off my skimmer, dont want to suck out the eggs!!! So My tank is fairly clouded up with snail eggs and they are still going at it!!!!
    I got a video if I can manage to get it off my phone I will post it.

    I had that happen once with sea stars. I collected a red one near Key West and and orange one in Key Largo. The two of them crossed. It looked like someone poured a gallon of milk in my tank once they finished. After a week, I had tiny stars all over the glass. Cool to see happen.
