crushed coral, vacumming, and sifting critters

Hey Everyone --

Right now I've got CC that has been working just fine. I give it a good scrubbing during water changes every so often, and my levels have been nice and steady for quite a while.

So, now I'm thinking of getting some more sifting critters (starfish, crabs, etc), but am not sure if that would be right with what I have. I've got hermits, snails, and a bunch of brittle star that came with the LR, but I'm wondering if the CC would be too course for sifting stars? If so, would I still need to vacuum the bed during water changes? I would think not, but if so, how to clean around them?


The setup:
55 gal, CC base with 120# LR
CurrentUSA ORBIT 4x65W PC with moonlights
Seaclone skimmer
Fluval 304 for carbon and LR rubble
couple of MaxiJet-900 PHs
Calcium and Corbonate supplements 2x/week

2 percula clowns | 1 kole tang
1 royal gramma | 1 lawnmower blenny
1 cleaner shrimp | 1 fire shrimp
2 emerald crabs | bunch of snails and hermits

The uninvited:
1 curlyQ anemone | 1 flower anemone
a boatload of fire worms and brittle/banded stars
... and now 100% mantis free!
