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?

usmc I am looking for a rule of thumb or something like that to know if it was venimus or not? I live with the ocean in my back yard and I want to know so If I find some I like I can add to my tank

:idea: 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?

here are some pictures sorry about the sump picture

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?
