have you tried some of the sites that sell things, like www.liveaquaria.com , www.saltwaterfish.com or www.vividaquariums.com
or are you looking for a site that lists snails?

maybe try Amazon.com for a book on them.
I know where I live there are a few snails I don't pick-up when diving as they are poisonous/deadly.
doesn't "Barron's" have a book on them?

I have added the little black snails to my tank that come from the ocean in south carolina and they are stil lalive and that was about 1.5 years ago. That are the only ones I have seen. But before you start removing stuff from the ocean check your local laws about it. SC was very stricked on people doing that. Are those the ones you are talking about?

well what do you think. I think the cone shaped ones are safe, but I have done very little reseach. I know nothing about snails other then what you see in the fish stores. By the way are those very small dirt collored worm shaped things worms or dirt, and are they good to add to the system?
