When planning for a clean up crew, most hobbyists forget the essential rules. You must have a balanced equation. What this means is that you need the eaters and poopers to be in balanced proportions. To many poopers, not enough eaters, you will have a serious algae outbreak.
Hermits are great for cleaning up - from left over food, detritus, poop and more - they will eat it. Nassarius snails do an excellent job of removing dead, or decaying waste. Algae grazing snails are great - but always remember - if they dont have enough algae to eat, they will die and then the battle starts again with phosphates, nitrates and nitrites being available to feed the nuisance algae due to the death of the snails.
