Self righting snails... ? Is there such a thing?

Looking to add some snails in a week. Who rights themselves? I am a firefighter and work 24 hour shifts and would like to leave for work one day and come home the next and not have a few dead snails.

Nassarius snails. I got 50 of them for 16.00 thats with shipping. They are amazing, they flip themselves over immediately. Not good for alage, but great for eating any uneaten food, and detrious. When I hand feed my shrimp and anemone raw shrimp they go crazy. They also burrow in the sand which keeps it well oxygenated.

AWESOME input !
Thanks guys !
Anything else?
I want go the snail route... but may have a hitchhiker green crab I'll have to keep ! I hope I don't get a Mantis though, I may just keep him in the tank to help cycle if I do get one ! I'd rather deal with him then have a totoally empty tank to cycle !

Definitely not a red-legged snail! Stupid snail! Even when it's not flipped over, it's barely doing anything. I wouldn't mind if my blue-legged hermit did it in. How often do I need to flip the stupid thing over?

Ceriths and nerites are good algae grazing snails that will right themselves if they fall over.
