Questions on Algae eating Snails..

I've seen this in the TAG articles and was wondering,
Does anyone know/use them??

Particular Snail - very good for cleaning Rocks etc..
Not advisable to keep in tank for long term due to the
deposit of eggs...

"Clithon Retropictus"

I currently have a Rock scape and I would really like to
obtain the brilliant Reds..

I've never heard of those snails, but Neritina reclivata will do the job you are looking for. The egg depositing seems to only last for so long and then it slows down dramatically. I haven't cleaned my glass once since I added them to my tank and it looks more spotless than it ever has.
