LOL. I have an overabundance of snails so i don't worry too much about sand nasties. i do however try to get all the big chunks of debris and I dig maybe a 1/4 inch into he sand if that. More of a light touch. I'm sure you'll get the hang of it soon, its all new to you.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
