They'll feed off any algae.

Just a reminder turbos get to be bulldozers. You might think of pom pom crabs they are small and shy but they will learn to come out when there is food for them. Unless you have a massive algae problem one turbo might be to much I have one in a 55 with hair algae and he does a good job at keeping it clean. You might consider an astera snail or a virgin nerite they are smaller but they do a great job on algae. There are so many choices. If you go with a hermit crab remember they will kill a snail just to try on its shell and decide the old one fits better

If you pick up a nassarius make sure your rock is table and on the bottom of the tank, they turn the sand over and will cause the rocks to fall down if not

Turbo and cerith will clean the rock and glass

Edit: 3 or 4 nassarius for a 2G hex? That's not a lot of space plus the hex makes the bottom even smaller
Sorry, didn't realize it was a hex. 3 or 4 would be overkill.
