crabs and snails in sump

Just wondering if anyone has tried keeping crabs or snails in their sump to eat detritus. Seems like a too high flow of an area to me. Do you think it would work? Thanks...Lando

Yes, if your sump has a refugium part or live rock instead of bio balls then you can, once I removed my bio balls, I placed a couple in my sump and the snails are reproducing like crazy.
