Bi-color blennys and bristle tooth tangs can do some work on the rock too.

I would get some hermit crabs and shrimp to clean up excess waste. I would get some snails to clean up the rocks and glass. Get different kinds of snails. I would really look into what kind of crab would be reef safe for you. Most reefer's think crabs are evil!! I dont have any, besides hermits.

With that size tank, I would get about 100 snails, and about 50 hermits. IMO.
