    I'm not sure what these snails are and there may be multiple types here but there are a ton of babies all over the sandbed and I just want to be sure that if they are bad they aren't going to get out of control before I can do something about them. Instead of including all the pictures I have added a link to an Imgur thread below.

    Thanks in advance!

    I have knowingly added roughly:
    10 Cerinth
    5 Astraea
    5 Nassarius
    5 Banded Trochus
    2 Mexican Turbo
    1 Fighting Conch

    I also added some cheto into my sump at one point that wasn't as clean as I had hoped so who knows what could have hitchhiked in on that.

    It's either baby cerith or nassarius.

    Cool deal, I don't mind that at all. I initially thought that they were cerinth but in my little bit of reading, I started to believe that they don't breed well in our tanks.
