Vacuuming sand....

Hi All, still a relative newbie. I have a 30 gal sw tank with a royal gramma, a gold headed goby, a chromis, a cleaner shrimp, a fire shrimp and snails, both Nassarius and turbo. Do I still need to vacuum the sand or will it harm the clean up crew? Thanks in advance, Julie.

No need, the gold head and the nassarius will take care of any sand cleaning

or you could get a sand-sifter (ex. diamond goby) and they'll keep your sand looking new
