I would avoid a sand sifting star unless you have a large tank. Most end up depleting the sand bed of fauna in the sand bed and end up starving eventually.

Nassarius are good for clean up and i would pick some up. Best way to get rid of detrius is just to siphone a little out each time you do a water change.

+1 for Nassarius snails. They are great little scavengers.
