What should i use for a clean up crew? This tank is going to have a few fish. Two clowns , one yellow tang and maybe a goby. Im going to have corals in it two. Hard and soft ones. Thanks for the advise Duane

did you use shrimp to cycle? what size is your tank? you can buy clean up crews for the certain size of your tank from marinedepot.com or liveaquaria.com but you could get something like a sand sifting sea star or a sea cucumber or maybe a serpent sea star. Maybe for algae some hermit crabs or turbo snails.

go to www.liveaquaria.com they have a pretty good selection of clean-up packages at a pretty reasonable price.

I bought crew from Garf.org, healthy robust guys, 3 diff types snails and red hermits.. 82 total at $1 each.. great critters and very nice folks to deal with at Garf. one of the snails has a big old barnacle on him and the crabs like to get in gang fights to battle for shells......

(Yes, I put empty shells in there for them... they like to fight anyway)
