I have a link to my LFS which is a GREAT store, and very knowledgeable. They sell clean up crew packages for various tank sizes.... not that you have to get it from them, but here is a recommendation chart. HTH!!

scroll to the bottom of the page for clean up crew

Cheers,
Ryan

Check your phosphates too. How's your other levels?

I'd wait to see how the turbos do before you add more. If in a week, there's no change maybe more. In the meanitme, add some nassarius snails for the sand bed and some astrea snails also. You got fish in there, right? If so, I'd add more hermits too. Scarlet reff are my favorites.

That`s where I`ve been going. Scott is the man. Also go to Fish world some but not as much. Give me a PM and Come by and look at the tank. Live down by Manchester H.S.
