thanks. I have several Narsarius snails of different sizes. They don't seem to move much and I can see the sand is still dirty.

Is it just me or is it hand to find a nassarius under 1" nowadays? I have a 2G Fluval and really cannot accommodate one the size of a walnut!

Evanski I got a bunch of tiny ones from Reefcleaners. Try them?


I do t have a lot of room to siphon.


Thanks for the info...but I need a grand total of ONE! Shipping would make it one expensive gastropod!


I have been to about 6 local LFS and came up empty.

Yeah...but I will probably just nab one when I see it at the LFS. I did get a dwarf cerinth who went nose down into the sand and haven't seen him since. I have this fantasy that he is just churning the entire sand bed all by himself!

Don't get a sand sifting star, those tend to die off rather quickly and they also eat all the beneficial little bugs in your sanded, the bugs that do the cleaning and breakdown.

snails don't do jack.


I'd recommend a sand sifting goby. I loved mine... until it decided to jump.


I've also heard good things about sand sifting cuc's
