CUC 29g

I have a biocube 29g and I'm ready to add my cuc. Does anybody have any suggestions? What kind of inverts and how much of each should I get to keep my tank clean?

ReefCleaners.org | Clean Up Crews and Macro Algae - Home

Great selection and price. They will also give you their recommendation on what to get for you tank size. You can then downsize it (I did) on how much diatoms and algae you have or if you feel it's just too much.

Because they sell them. I also have a biocube 29. I have 4 mini hermits and 4 snails of various kinds. Thats all. But their food comes and goes so this seems to be the right amount for me. You may need more or less.

I was thinking 2 shrimp, 2 hermits and a handful of snails. That seems about right for my tank.
