Nassarius snails are a fantastic CUC (clean up crew) member.  Scavenging for detritus this snail resides in the sand until night OR it recognizes a feeding opportunity where they errupt from the sand bed in fine fashion. They are fairly effective at most aquarium sand sifting needs when purchased in proper numbers.   WE SUGGEST 5 snails per square feet of aqaurium foot print.*  this reccomendation is based on an everry other day moderate feeding schedule for the aquaruim.
