In my 55 I have at least 60 snails and another dozen hermits. Got a sea hare and a serpent star too.

I think you could beef that up a bit. Unless you want larger snails over smaller ones.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Check out this link and pick a CUC pack for the size tank you have.
Aquarium Algae Reef Cleaner Packages: Algae Eating Fish and Detritus Feeders for Saltwater Aquariums
At least look at what they recommend for a tank you're size and then go to reefcleaners.org and get the same setup cuz reefcleaners is cheaper.

I think your tank can def handle a bit more. Most of them you won't even see like the snails. I agree with Mike, check out whats recommended for your tank and go to reefcleaners.com. I've placed a few orders with them adn they are great!! And super cheap too! I will say though if you go through them get a smaller pack than what's listed for your tank. they really over do it there. I got a 25g crew for my 55g tank and it was still a tad much.

One thing about reefcleaners you get extras. The last package I got was enough to take care of my tank and 2 of my friends tank. The only snail that I didn't really like was the nerites because they kept kept crawling out. Like Carey said go for about 1/2 the size.
