Turbo snails are algae eaters while nassarius snails eat detritus and other nitrate producing nasties. They also primarily live in the sandbed. Both beneficial in different ways.

Theres some kind of ”plant” on some of the rock, the lady said it helps keep nitrate and phosphate down a lot? Y'all have any idea what it is?
