I am having the hardest problem keeping my live rock, tank, and sand clean. It's a seemingly impossible task right now.
First, I had some sand shifting snails and turbo snails. I then got a hermit crab - bad decision. I woke up the next morning and all my sand shifting snails were killed. I returned the hermit crab.
I got some small snails that stay on top of the sand and clean the substrate a bit. However, it looks like now my puffer fish is going around and eating them up. As far as the turbo snails go, he goes around and nocks them down. He really hasn't been successful in eating the turbos, as it appears that hide pretty far back in their shell.
So... I need some suggestions. I need something that can clean the sand and keep my rocks and glass clean.
In the tank right now, there is a green wolf eel, panther grouper, lion fish, and, as said, a stars & stripes puffer.
I need some help. Please give me some suggestions and some place where I can pick them up online.
PS: My LFS
told me that there's a fish that goes around the sand, puts sand in his mouth and spits the sand back out. Sounds interesting... but will it work?
