Blue leg hermit crabs are good cleaners. I have 6 but started with 12. I have a mantis shrimp that hitch hiked in and I believe he killed the 6 smaller ones.

The hermits not in water are different right? They have a cage with bowls of water with theirs

Blue legged, red legged they even have orange ones too. Hermit crabs are pretty neat. Emerald crabs and snails.

Cleaner shrimp or the banded shrimp you mentioned.

Live Aquaria is pretty good at labeling what is reef safe what's not and what to be cautious about. Me personally I'd stay away from emerald crabs. There got or miss. Hermits are ok, snails, peppermint shrimp, pistol shrimp, banded shrimp. Some brittle star fish.
