Lettuce Nudibranch or More snails?

I was wondering if I should get 2 Lettuce Nudibranchs or if I should get 5 more of each scarlet, blue legged hermets, and tubo snails. Let me know becuase I am planning upgrading my cleaning crew and Im not sure which will be better. I have a 65 gallon tank with a lot of hair aleage on walls but not on rocks/sand.

Get some redfoot snails. They love hair algae. They are large snails so, maybe a dozen would be good. I know liveaquaria sells them but you may be able to get them locally. HTH

go with the snails and hermits...nudibanches are hard to take care of..and can be pickier than hermits and snails....if you lose one of those nudibranches then there goes half your crew...if it were me i would stick with proven...

are the nasurius the ones that are the size of a finger nail? because I added about ten to my tank and all the little crabs tracked them down and ate them in two days

I am not sure I have never had them before Ive had tubos and ones I got from the ocean. I call them elephant noses but I think that just there nick. I think the nasuius are the ones with a sort of roundish shell http://www.saltwaterfish.com/site_11...ot_parent_id=4 thats the one I am going to get.
