I have 3 tanks with sand, and I don't want to sift it myself, and I don't really do it much, just once a week during wc... What can I get to sift it for me?

20 gallon planted- titanium moon sand, has cherry shrimp, Cory catfish, apple snail, ottos, 2 plattys.

5 gallon- african dwarf frogs

45 gallon- red tailed shark, angels, black skirt tetras, nerite snails, Molly's and I think I spotted some kind of small snail today, and it didn't look like a normal snail, so I'm hoping it's a malasyian trumpet snail... It's shell is kind of that shape but not as vivid..

Thanks!

You talking about Malaysian Trumpet snails?



That will burrow through substrate to help prevent anaerobic spots that can form hydrogen sulfide pockets?

Yes, exactly. I think that's what they are though, but I can't tell now, they're babies. But I was wondering if anything else is a good option for preventing the pockets.
