The Gold Ring Cowrie is an excellent choice as part of a clean up crew, especially for a reef environment. They are omnivores and will consume both micro algae and many of the filament algae species while remaining small. With beautiful shells protected by their mantle (foot) they will clean glass and rock work. May eat ornamental sponges.
