yellow tang poop

I saw my yellow tang poo the other day. The poop is still in the same place on the substrate as when it landed. I have found a few more pieces too. I have a mixed sand / crushed coral substrate. What can I do about this? I am about the get a few hermits. Would that help? Or do I even need to worry about this? Thanks.

-50gal tank
-20gal tall sump / refugium.
-About 15-20 lbs of live rock
-60 lbs (3") of sand.
-2x65w power compact lights
-2x18w power compact in the refug.
-bak pak 2R
-3 LARGE feather dusters all differebt colors
-orange spotted goby
-fire fish
-12 or so hermits
-50-60 nassairus snails
-about 12 turno snails
-emrald crab

good water flow will help get that into the filters, but that kinda poop is normal for tangs. Hermits should help.

A banded serpent star (age of tank depending) and nassarius snails do an amazing job of substrate maintenance.
