Nassarius snails and conches really help here. They burrow into the sand a lot and stir it up quite a bit. However, the ultimate solution, in my opinion, would likely be discouraged by the majority of the people on this site. I would get either a sand sifting sea star and/or a tiger-tail sea cucumber. Both of these will mix up your sand much faster than the algae and cyano
can grow. Others would argue that they kill pods
, but I value the cleaning service they provide over the pods
they might remove.
