CUC?

Hey there wondering what would be a good clean up crew? I was wanting a blue legged hermit, some peppermint shrimp, any other ideas for my ten gallon?

Blue legged hermits an peppermint shrimp will work. Maybe a cleaner shrimp also. Some snails also.

I'd be very careful scooter will demolish a pod population a lot quicker than you think! Especially in a 10 gallon as I'm assuming there's no dump or them to breed in. I don't mean to be pessimistic but be prepared to trim he scooter onto other food or buy lots and lots of pods!

Well I hope it all works out well with the scooter but should really give it a few weeks to cycle before adding fish in future just in case! The spikes shouldn't have happened yet so you may get some in days or weeks if so you will need to do water changes. I would leave the cuc for the time being though and add it in a few weeks save it dieting and you having to replace it
