Burrowing snail

Hi all!
I'm setting up small SW tank with a DSB and wonder if anyone here knows a good smaller burrowing snail?

Cerith snails (Cerithium) are pretty good little diggers with most being not bigger than about 2cm. So far there's only one species I've seen that gets significantly bigger than that. Nassarius are also good for a DSB, and they are smaller than Ceriths, but I have no personal experience with those.

Ceriths are cool(I have 2) but Nassarius are THE burrowing snail imo =D. Expensive and I can't find them right now :'(.
