    Hi,

    I haven't seen them anywhere yet, but does anyone have, or can anyone bring in Dwarf Ceriths? These guys are really great detris cleaners, and being so small they really get into all the little small cracks and what not in the rocks.

    If the prices are right, I'm after a rather large qty...

    Those small ceriths, are detritus eaters, hides mostly in the sand. But I had not seen any yet being available in any shop ever.

    Some other option, but just as difficult to get at shops is Strombidae snails.

    Closest other option is Nassarius, as they do come in at times. I got 2.
    But as Nassarius and whelks are closely related, some guys do not like them.

    Cerith and Strombidae are detritus feeders. Where nassarius are mostly vultures. They clean up our oceans just like the birds. Mostly you have to feed a piece of hake or what ever for them as well. Else they will starve and die. I feed mine once a week when I do feed the anemones.
