    Default Nassarius Snails?

    Hi peoples

    Anyone know if these little snails will be ok living with an aragonite substrate? Yes I know sand is better, but I don't have a sand bed

    I bought mine from a LFS and they were in crushed coral. Hope that helps.

    I have about 15 in my aragonite/fine crushed coral, they do great. Come out and climb the glass at night and pop out of the sand when I feed the tank.

    I love it when I feed my tank and the whole mob of them come out. They do a great job cleaning the sad bed.

    they would do a lot better if you did have sand, if you are looking for snails get margarita snails and cerith snails, margaritas are big but not mexican turbo style so they still do a great job without knocking over your coral and cerith snails will eat diatoms and cyano. ceriths also love sand as well and would do better with sand but still should be fine with CC
