I personally think 1 snail for every gallon really helps out. In a 30g I would go with 10 nassarius snails and 20 astrea/margurita snails. I also like having 1 hermit for every 2 gallons. Snails and hermits are a great addition because they help keep algae down, they eat leftover food that your fish don't eat, they stir up the sand bed, and if one of your animals die they will clean up the body in a matter of hours before the carcas can foul up your water.

Click on the link that says "good all around cleaner" and about 3 pages of items will show up. I think it is good to get a variety of items.
