clean up crew!?!?!?

Well, the tank has been up and running for about seven or so months. I have a few snails and an urchin which all came with the rock. I will propabably be adding a little more live rock a piece or so at a time over the next two months. I also am ready to look into a clean up crew but I'm not 100% sure what I need. I have a 75 gallon with a yellow tang and clarkii clown right now. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I figured I would ask you guys so I am prepared with a list when I go to the LFS. I don't want to be told I need something I don't or be advised in the wrong direction when I get there. Thanks everyone!!!!

Nassarius/Illyanassa snails are great for turning the sand bed. You can get them much cheaper on Ebay, though.


General hermits and snails are a good idea. With the hermits though, make sure you provide them with extra shells to move into, else they will devour your snails.
