Hi i was wondering if there any snails which remain fairly small but do a good job of cleaning.

I generally find the larger ones less attactive but would like something small which would clean my tank.

Check out nerite snails. They're not quite as big as a mystery snail, but most of them have very attractive shells. They're champion algae eaters too.
