Thanks everyone I will def be getting my cleanup crew from them. I always look at things like testimonials on sites and feel you really don't know unless you ask someone who has ordered from them.

You know you don't actually need a cleanup crew, right? You can have just as nice a system with absolutely no shrimp, crabs, or snails. Just remember that whatever you add to the tank must have food to sustain them.

Oh I agree, I have just always loved having inverts since my freshwater tank is limited to these type of inhabitants, especially their bright colors.

Well then, I prefer porcelain crabs to hermits. Hermits tend to eat your snails. 3 nassarius is fine as long as you make sure they are getting food. They don't eat crap and detritus as the internet says...they eat meaty foods.

The porcelain crabs are what really got me, them and the sexy shrimp lol. My current updated list for inverts is as follows...may have to take the hermit off if they will eat the snails

Sexy Shrimp x 3
Cleaner Shrimp x 1
Porcelain Crab x 2
Pom Pom Crab x 2
Hermit Crab x 1
Astrea Snails x 2
Nassarius Snails x 3

The presence of my blue jaw trigger fish proves your point, my inverts have been long gone with no ill effects. CUC really just re-circulate the organic materials they feed on. They are useful in my opinion for getting food out of nooks and crannies and can be fun to watch, but not necessary.

I would for sure not get a hermit crab. It went through three of my Mexican turbo snails within a two week period. Finally had to get him out of there, kind of sad because he was nice and big. He also had a tiny feather duster on his shell

I have hermits and snails in my tank and my heits have never eaten any snails. They have been together for almost 2 years. Im not saying they dont eat snails, ive just never had a problem with it.
