Sound good, but just as a heads up the nassarius snails are scavenging meat eater so they will require some food along with the hermits. Just a little bit will go a long way. Until you get some fish then you feed the fish and the snails and hermits will munch on the leftovers.

I had a diamond sleeper gobie did a good job stirring sand and also ate frozen food but +1 on nass snails

Our yasha hase goby eats mysis, brine shrimp, and bloodworms with no problem. We have him paired with a red banded pistol shrimp.

I have to agree with waiting on the goby. I got a diamond watchman and it's pretty hard to keep him fed without putting in tons of food. He cleared my tank of pods in less then a week and I now have to hand feed him. I would wait a while before you get one.
