Yeah I never though of that, perhaps I will just add the my planned list of fish and wait for a while on the snails/hermits.

Yeah...that's probably a good idea... Plus.. I heard that Inverts are Giant fans and do Not like Philly Eagles Households.. So you may look into that too.. Maybe turn the lights off in the tank Sunday while you watch the game??

I dont know. After you cycle the tank I would add a few members of your clean up crew because more than likely you`ll have some type of algea in there. As for hermits I use these as they seem to be better for the reef enviornment.

Do you think it is ok to add some snails and at least one fish at the same time, or too much bio load?

Snails don't add to your bioload. Also... just because you can't see the algae doesn't mean it's not there. You don't want to wait until you have an algae problem, or even visible algae, to add a cleanup crew. In my opinion, it's too late by then to get up on it.

Good to know I didn't know that snails did not add to bioload!

Technically everything that creates waste adds to a bioload, but in most clean-up crews the amount is negligible.
