    Ok so I need some alhae eating snails for my 125g salt, the think is they have to be able to right themselves. The gray angel has a habit of 'investigating' everything! and flips snails and hermits often.
    So Margarita snails are out...... so what else may do the job?

    also will sea urchins climb the glass to eat algae? Toying with the idea of getting one for this tank.... mostly because I can Laughing But from what I know they are decent little algae grazers? I have been eying the long spine but that venom on their spines is a bit of a turn off...

    Cerith snails will eat algae and can right themselves. The hermits will usually kill your snails over time. Urchins eat algae. They don't differentiate between algae you want them to eat (the stuff on yo glass, gha etc) and algae you don't want them to eat (corraline usually)
