Kind of depends on the load your system has on it. My lfs recommended 1 snail per 2 or 3 gallons. However, I am way below that and have noticed no algae blooms. Another piece to look at is a UV filter. It is a fairly expensive component however, I associate the clarity of my water with it. I have it on a timer and run it a few hours a day.

Sorry. I meant 1 hermit crab per 1-3 gallons and a snail for every 10. But like I said I am running a much smaller clean up crew and it seems I be fine

Although there is much debate on feeding schedules, I think you are feeding too much. 1 cube per day for 2 damsels and 2 clowns is too much. When I had my 30 gal tank with 2 damsels, a Clarkii clown and a large BSwatchman goby, I'd only go thru about 1/3 of a cube per day that I fed them that.

New tank goes into a nitrogen cycling process for at least several months and it will always pass a stage where they become cloudy for a brief period. Some people install UV sterilizer to get rid of the diatoms and they notice it clears for a couple of days. Some change water while some just waited for several days and they have same results.
