I have a high tech heavily planted 80g tank filled with neons. The tank has a WHITE sand bottom.

The cories do a good job with left over food.. But there are lots of pin head dots that collect all over the bottom. I only see it because this tank has a white sandy bottom. I dont know what they are but I assume neon poo.

I suck up as many as I can during PWC.. But I'm loosing the war. Is there an animal that would solve this problem for me? Like cherry shrimp or snails or something?

that stuff is good for plants! lol
but yes im assuming thats what it is as well, i have the same issue with my 29 gallon and dont think i'll be using white sand ever again as much as i like the look.. It just never stays white. No fauna will clear that up for you and will in fact, make it worse as they will add to it..
