Nassarius and Nerite Snails discovering my sump and my florr OoO?

I put some Nassarius and Nerite Snails in to my sump yesterday and they start to explore around the sump.
some went all over to my protain skimmer section, some are trying to go to my return section.

Should I bring them back to the refugium section??
or they will go back once they done exploring?

There's no controlling those guys. If you move them, they'll just make their way back

I'm kinda of curious if the nassis could survive with the puffer, since they spend a lot of their time under the sand.

Only one way to tell..

Hahaha, anyways. I would think that they would be safe all as long as they are under the sand, but when they come out for food.. they better be darn quick or they're fish food.

I would actually make that a experement. Either way someone wins. Either 1 the puffer gets a free meal or the snails get to a bigger space.

Well, it would be an advantage for the puffer, not only a snack but they need a hard surface to chew on, in order to wear down their fused "teeth".

hiding under the sand won't get away from my puffers OoO
they like to chew sand when I m not feeding them.....
I won't feed nassis to them cuz I breed ghost shrimps and FW snails for them already XD
nass will stay to clean my sump for a while until I change then tank to reef.
