10 to 15 hermits red/blue leg, 10 to 15 assorted snails, then add one or so of any of the following. urchins, emerald crabs, serpent stars, cleaner shrimp, coral banded shrimp, peppermint shrimp. My 90g has appx 125 assorted of these and I never have any detritus left in my tank. A fish can die and I wouldn't even ever see it. We recently lost a regal blue tang,about 3 1/2 inches long, and never even saw it again. Just dissappeared. www.garf.org recommends appx 1 1/2 cleaners per gallon in an extablished tank with plenty of live rock. Start with a handful of these very good choices and add to it as your tank matures and your algae problems start.
