I have probably 10 red/blue leg hermits and a couple with white claws. I do have a bunch of extra shells but now that I think of it none of the hermits take the shells, they just eat the snail.

I have a mixture of snails and crabs. I have found the snails are better at eating leftover food detrius, etc. The crabs eat a little algae but the majority of my algae consumption is done by my urchin! I have 65 crabs and they do not compare to one urchin!

i have astreas and blue leg hermits and they keep all the algae down really well. Depends on where you have it, if its on the sand bed then hermits are good cuz astreas wont go in the sand and if its on the lr and walls the snails rip it up.

Trochus snails are appealing to the eye and also help keep the glass clean of algaes. They move around fairly fast.
