I am looking for a method to control the debris on top of the sand. During water changes some gets removed but I am looking for a way to get rid of it between water changes. I have turbo snails which clean the live rock and glass. Would a reef safe star fish help? Or would some other organism be better. I have very little algae in the main tank. Lots in the sump. The tank is 120 gallons and is 4 months old.

Detritus consumers I recommend: (not in any particular order)

Fighting Conch
Mopping type cucumber (reef turd)
Spaghetti Worms
Cirratulid Worms
Polychaete Worms (Bristle worms)
Mysid Shrimp
most 'pods
If you wake up breathing CONGRATULATIONS!!! You get another chance to do it right.
