Olive Snails
Olive snails are fun snails that will erupt from the sand bed if the smell food. Give them a chunk and they will dive back into the sand to eat it later. Be careful if you have smaller snails like Nassarius snails or small hermit crabs, as these snails have been seen (in my tank!) to grab them and dive into the sand with them...and eat them!
