Crabs and snails should not be a problem. Ornimental shrimp are up for grabs. Some may not bother them, other will. LR is fine but say goodbye to any fan worms or feather dusters.

Sorry, one more thing. My copperband butterfly has never bothered any of my shrimp (skunk, fire, peppermind or pistol). It did, however, take care of all of my feather dusters on my LR in no time flat.

I say go for the Auriga. They are fairly hardy and one fo the best selections for the home aquarium. Henis are nice as well but do best in groups. This requires a very large system.

I've heard the longnose is also easy to keep as well...would you pick it over the auriga?

The long-nose can be difficult to feed due to it's very small mouth. Still, a pretty hardy addition.
