    So I am thinking of getting some type of sand sifter invert but I am not sure what would work. Anyone have any suggestions? I have a 55g with a little less than 40 lbs of sand.

    I've heard great things about strawberry conch but never tried one. I keep a sand star in my 125 and it does an amazing job. No pests, and clean sand. I know some say they do harm with the fauna but I've never experienced any negative effects so I'm sticking with him.

    +1 to fighting conch. Theyre quite funny to watch when they come out of the sand as well.

    +1 for the conch. I have three in my 300 and sand is pristine.
