I have a tiger sand conch which has done an awesome job of keeping my crushed coral substrate clean. There is definitely a marked difference between how the substrate looked before and after I got it

At least 3 ppl have suggested the tiger conch. So you make four. Lol. In my 25 reef I have about 8 nassarus snails and a searpent star and they keep it under control. Worst my trites ever get is .05 and since I added the star I haven't even see them get there. Not to mention the coral blend I went with is very fine. The largest pieces are no bigger than an apple seed.
