I bang on about  this all the time, so it was good to come across this  article  written by someone with sound credentials  :grin:

"For several years, I have been recommending and suggesting that aquarists add "detritivores" to their sand beds and to their reef systems, in general. A short time ago, I was asked, "Just what is a detritivore and why should I add some to my tank." In essence, this aquarist wanted to know why in the world that he should pay a lot of money for animals that generally are invisible. And even worse, why pay for animals that when they are not invisible, are ugly?"
