I've got some scarlets, and, honestly, I think they're more cute than helpful (but they are awfully cute). Ceriths are OK, but for as large as their shells are, the snails themselves are quite small and don't really consume a whole lot. I'd have to say the most efficient members of my CUC (best appetite relative to size) would be my Astrea snails. Wherever they go, they leave nothing but clean behind them.....
