My 120Gal is almost done with its cycle. The algae has started to take off. The algae growth includes some caulerpa taxifolia, grape, an unidentified leafy species, hair, and a few small brown patches on portions of the glass. I'd like to get a get a cleanup crew to hold off the algae while the tank matures. Does the following look good for the first wave of a cleanup crew?
20 Dwarf Blue Leg Hermits
4 Emerald Crabs
if you have that much algae tho there shouldnt be a problem with everybody finding food for the time being. to stave off carnivorous hermits, provide a few extra shells so they arent tempted to oust the snails.
The majority if not all of my fish will be under 4". My LFS has a huge emerard mithrax crab, his body is at least 2" wide and I'm sure he could take out a small fish given the chance. If they get out of control I'll remove them.
