My tank is near the end of the cycle or it might be done. I need to get an accurate test from my lfs. Right now my cleanup crew consist of four assorted hermits and 5 turbo snails. There were six hermits, but they can be a little homicidal. My live rock looks great but my sand looks like a field. I don't know if I should go with a sand mixer (nass. snails) or a sand sifter. I thought the sand sifters wouldn't find enough food in the sand bed of a jbj twelve gallon. Does anyone have any suggestionts Question

nass snails are always good and there so cool. they are the only snails that I have ever baught that survived. very cute little fellas. if your sand is fineish they will disapear! then whenever you feed your fish your sand bed will come alive with little nass snails. fantastic little guys I highly recomend them.

there not algae eaters. I hear they will graze slightly but mainly left over food. they're really small and they have little tube like noses. they stick them out when they "smell" food and then go hunting. very cool.

I've been thinking about a Florida fighting conch. I've read they do much damage to diatoms and keep the sand bed loose, to.
