just bought some hermits and astraea snails, they arent great, but i'll give them some time

nassarius sounds like a good idea, close to an inch down in my substrate, i notices theres like a dark layer, perhaps they can stir it up a bit

I would say must haves would be.... a fighting conch, a few of the large variety of nassarius snails for the sand bet and also take care of some ditritus. Also any of the cleaner snails are always a good idea. I also like emerald crabs and different types of hermits

Would Nassarius snails do OK in a bed of courser coral gravel or do they need a fine sand bed? I have a bed of crushed coral that is a bit course. Also, what about brittle stars? No one has mentioned them.

Nevermind on my brittle star question. Just saw the post from Florida Newbie.

ehh, i just bought some. i have argonite, which is i suppose really fine CC, and i havent seen any of my nassarius in the sand bed yet. larger crushed coral would be a deffinate no.

i've never seen shrimp scurry for food like my peppermints, though they do hide constantly, though they might just be scared, being in a new tank and all
