I have a 16 gallon tank with 20 pound of deep sand bed and about 30 pound of live rock. I am on my day 28 and have about a week to do my first water change.Click image for larger version

I would go with
6 Hermit Crabs
4 Snails
Dwarf Starfish
Some Ceriths would be good too!

The website the guy above posted is great

I wouldn't get anything unless you like to watch them in your tank and you have food for them, or are willing to feed them. crabs and snails are completely unnecessary to keep a healthy tank.

I agree with Doug. If you feel you need some I would make it a small group of them. I might think about adding a fish or two first.
