You're fine. They're great scavengers. As Kevin said , they eat road kill, not live stuff. Just what's left over from feedings or stuff that has already died.

I want them. I just wanted to make sure they wern't gonna kill any thing. My wife bought a royal somthing (purple and yellow). And my hatian Anemone ate it. Boy is she mad at me. (Stupid fish should have stayed away from it)

Yea, that's what it was. I figured it was smart enought to stay away from the anemone's but I guess not.

I had snails similar to that that came with my liverocks.com order and I originally thought they were nassarius but they were not. They were on my rock all the time and never went in the sand. Most of my nassarius that I bought live in the sand. Only time youe see them is when I feed and they pop up

I did actually witness one of these hithhiker snails attempting to kill one of the nassarius snails. They are predatory snails. I have since removed most of them.

Just an FYI.

I posted pics in another thread.

If they spend most of their time in the sand, you should be fine. At least that is what I was told. Mine were always on the LR and never buried themselves in the sand.

Mine are always on the rock. Guess I'll get to rearrange my rock again.
