I definitely am getting banded coral shrimp. I am going to see about a cleaner package. There is a site called reef cleaners or something its like $50 shipping and all for a big package it just seemed like a lot of snails do I really need that much?

My thing with reef cleaners is.... I feel they go a little overboard I re did the list in red.

Remember your CUC (clean up crew) will need to eat also. I think the list I revised is a happy in-between.

I'm no expert but that is my opinion on the CUC

So I should find a package closer to those numbers? I thought it seemed like way too much. When should I get them?

$25.82 for a 10 gallon package plus the extras to, make the numbers you suggested. Would I need to buy shells for the hermits?

well everything but the hermits ship free. there is a 28$ flat rate express on the hermits

I can order the 20 long for 44 and get 5 off it comes with more than what you listed other than hermits. Hermits are only 0.50 each for more

When you think I should get them. same time as fish?
