Clean a tank with crays in it? I was told a olive nerite snail and wanted to check and see if that is the only one.

I'm not sure why any particular snail would be better than any other at cleaning up after crays unless its a question of soft succulent unprotected snail bits dangling tantalizingly in the current, like an apple or mystery would, for example. In which case, the nerites would be a good pick because they're pretty compact and don't have a lot of readily available escargot and they have really hard uncrushable shells. I'd think MTS would be even better. I use both together and I never have to wipe the glass.
