Clean up crew

I just started my saltwater tank and it is a 36 gallon bow front. It now finished its cycle and I was just wondering what my clean up crew should consist of?

Hi Jayson, welcome to the forum. It is really up to you. My opinion is a CuC is not a necessary part for a successful reef tank, but there are some interesting critters that add life and personality to the tank.

That being said, I think the recommended packages from reefcleaners.org is a good starting place. I have ordered from them as have many here, and they do a pretty good job estimating an appropriate sized crew:
Quick Crews : Quick Crew w/Hermits (36 Bowfront) - Reef Cleaners

in all reality if you want a clean up crew give your tank time to establish
say 3/4 months after your cycle is finished , doing this will make sure your CUC wont die off from starvation especially snails
reef cleaners is the way to go you can either create your own clean up crew or choose a custom cuc that fits your tank and needs

Not bad advice. If you put them in sooner you'll need to feed them.
