what is the best snail to get?

OK...I went to the LFS to get a clean up crew for the brown algae and they suggested the mexican turbo snail...big guys and they eat the most and clean fast...but they arent cheap
or there others i should get along with these that may clean other things? or better then these mexican TS

Cerith snails are popular. They will help with sand bed more than turbos

$3.99 is good for turbos. They go for $12.99 around here sometimes. When you only have two LFS's in town, 3,000 miles away from any ocean, you get what you can, for whatever the cost.
