Cleanup crew in sump or just fuge

Does anyone put somecleanup crew of any sort in their sumps, or just their fuge? Sump has been running for a year, wondering if I should throw some snails in there to do some cleaning? Don't see what harm it would do.

- Skins

I'm guessing that you are talking about your return area of the sump right? Where your heater, pumps and other odds and ends are? I don't know about you but I always end up with a few snails down there. They seem to like to take a ride through the plumbing. I don't put any hermits in there just because there really isn't ever enough in there to keep them happy.

Hmmm never thought about adding a peppermint into the mix!! That may be what happens as I transition from just a HOB to a full sump with HOB on the side!!!
