The flea things you describe sound like copepods. Post a pic of the slug it could be a pest such as a nudibranch.
No clean up crew until ammonia and nitrite are 0 and nitrates below 10. Also what water are you using? If using tap that would explain why you have nitrates but not nitrites.
Also is this going to be a reef tank or FOWLR
