Get some snails (cerith, turbo, nassarius) for tank maintenance.

Probably 1 Turbo or Cerith. I would get three of four Nassarius.

If you can get one of each, you won't need much to keep a 2G clean.

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

They shouldn't be more than say $2 a piece, and that's overpricing. I bought both my snails and hermits for probably <$1 each (but I got it discounted for buying 3 or more of each)

Maybe a little over a buck a piece is what I'd say
