They say the scarlets are better ones, they dont fight as much or something. I dont have blues.

I have regular turbo snails....


If your skimmer is foaming fine then it is doing its job.

Start out small on the clean up crew if its a new tank with not much algae. They can starve if there is not enough food. 20 turbos thats alot IMO.. Feather dusters IMO should be kept in mature tanks the feed off the phytoplankton and really have little to do with cleaning it.
Get a varity of snails a few turbos, astraea,ceriths, nassarius. I have a mix of scarlet and blue leg hermits, just toss in some empty shells to help with the fighting.
Conch snails can get big real big.......

I would recommend www.reeftopia.com Awesome prices on everything and have plenty of cleanup crew packages. I have had very good luck and thats the only place i will order snails and hermits from. Just give them a call and they can tell you what they would recommend. I have a 125gal tank with about 120lbs or more of LR. This is what i put in there for cleanup crew:
150 micro blueleg hermits
60 astrea snails
24 nassarius
36 cerith snails
2 emerald crabs
4 peppermint shrimp

I am planning on getting 100 more snails in about a month from them. The package i have now is taking care of all the algae in the entire tank. HTH

My question is if the crew you have now is taking care of the algae why get 100 more? They will just end up starving
