If they went into the sand they are supposed to be there. Do you remember what kind of snail? More than likely they are some sort of Nassarius snail...should be fine. Just a reminder....always research anything you buy before you add it to your tank. Easier to say 'no' than try and remove anything after they're in your tank...fish, inverts, corals.

I agree they are probably nassarius snails. They will come out when you put food in the tank. Great snails for clean up and to stir the surface of your sand bed.

Nah, I wouldn't disturb them. If one should die, the others will clean it up. That's what they do.
