Fish help

What are some good fish that can clean algae on the sand floor, and some that can pick off ich.

i already have hermits, and shrimp. They do a good job cleaning my rock, but not my sand.

Thanks

Nassarius snails will be good for stirring up the sand. Turbo snails are great algae eaters.

Cleaner wrasse as well as cleaner shrimp are the only creatures I can think of that will eat parasites. HTH.

Do you have ich? If so I would worry about how you got it. Any new fish, corals, LR any added stress to the tank.
With certian cleaner fish if there are no parasites they will soon die. Unles you get lucky and have one eat foods....
