who cleans the sand?
None of my cleaner critters have been sifting my sand bed. Everything that falls on the sand just sits there. I have blue legged hermits and trosus snails. What should i buy to clean the sand bed?

For about $7 you could buy a white sand sifting star. Or when you do water changes just use a hose to draw the detritus up from the bottom without disturbing the sand. Another option is to redirect your power heads so that there is a current just above the sand that prevents wastes from accumulating.
