...someone mentioned a cucumber -- just be careful because they can release toxins which will kill your livestock

I had a goby once to shift the sand and it work really good, until it died. Now I have the sand shifter star. It does work great.

Someone tried to talk me into getting a conch once. I think I'll pass on those things. Get hermit crabs; they do a great job. Mine are constantly moving around lokking for food.

Whoever said a mandarin; that wouldn't be an idea. They eat pods, and don't clean up at all.

Is the Sand Sifter really that difficult to introduce without it dying? My book says that they are very sensitive.

I had used the goby and the star shifters and they worked great for me, the only thing that I did not liked about the goby is the mound of sand left everywhere, other than that it was fine.
