    I have two turbo snails in my ten gallon and they have been mowing away at the algae. One problem...I didn't expect them to poop so Dang much! There is snail poop all over the sand and its nasty looking. I got two made snails but they always stay under the sand. Is there another member of the cuc I can add that eats snail Poo?

    I don't have an idea for you, but I just want to watch this thread.

    May I ride your coat tails for a bit?

    I have a sea cucumber in my tank...and he is constantly eating the dirty sand and pooping out clean sand...or else you could try a conch.

    That's not what I meant at all, and I'm the nasty one.
    I just wanted to eavesdrop on the conversation.
    Sheesh! ;-)

    I know what yiu meant slim lol kbuser is the one in the gutter ;) jk I'm going to be getting a red banded goby so that's a no go on the sandsifter goby. I have a couple snails already. They just come out for food. Sea cuc is a good idea, but what if it finds my powerheads...its a small tank. Maybe ill try a conch.

    I've had a koralia 3 along the back wall of my tank, along the sand for over a year, and my cucumber has never had an issue with it there.
