looks good besides the hair algae issues. how do you plan on resolving that?

nassarious snails are meat eaters. they will not touch your hair aglae.

are your mag, calc, and alk levels in good range and what light are you using over the tank?

if any snails are good for hair algae i'd say mexican turbo snails but even thats a hit or miss.. tuxedo urchins will also eat it but will not survive in a nano as it will run out of a sustainable food source. try picking up a mexican turbo snail or two, although im not found of buying a problem to fix a problem, mex turbos are good to have and it wouldnt do any harm to have one or two.

I got the snails for sand sifting becuase they love to borrow under the sand

what kind of camera are you using? when you take them zoom all the way out and hit the maco button (it's flower) and let the lense focus then take the shot. also press the camera up against the glass to steady it, when in macro mode any movement will blur the image.
