When you say sand, is it possible that you have CC? I know they don't like CC. Other than that, I'm not sure why they're not in the sand...Mine ONLY come out at night.

I got 150 of them for my tank. and most of them only come out at night.
The lights go out and Bang snails everywhere. I like them. And they keep my tank very clean. I got them off EBay. 150 for like 14.00 bucks killer deal. underwater exotics is the store that is the cheapest for these little guys. They sell lots of 150 up to 500 I think. It's kind of a blessing they only come out at night for me and my 55gal. They shift my sand all day and clean my tank at night.

Mine all hit the sand and stayed there. Even the ones that came with some LR I purchased. I never see them on the glass itself, let alone the top.

I kind of look at mine like "canaries in a coal mine". I never see them unless my parameters go slightly of whack. If they're out during the day I do a quick water change. That usually drives them out of sight where I like 'em
