The only fish that sift sand are going to destroy your sandbed, you need to think in alternatives. Enough nassarius snails will get it turned over and keep it that way The fastest method is to lightly blow the very top layer of sand with a turkey baster.

If I remember correctly, these snails are predators and will eat the infauna in your DSB. Someone want to check me on that?

The Goby is a no no for a DSB. The Blenny will work, but if you don't have the algae to support its appetite, you will have to supplement it with nori and the like.

I have nassarius snails, they are very fast for snails. They keep the sand turned over well, they hide underneath the sand during the day. They also have bred. I started with 5 and now have at least 100 babies!!! I highly recommend them, they are awesome scavengers.
