Good clean up crew for a 75 gallon

Can someone suggest a good clean up crew for a 75 gallon tank please?

Thanks

Depends on how old the tank is and how much rock is in there now.

Check out LiveAquaria.com's reef cleaner packs. I got the 30-gallon algae attack pack for my 55 and they cleaned everything up in about a day (LR was covered in hair algae). I think the 55gallon CUC would've been too much, so I'm glad I chose the lower rating.

I don't think you'll get cleaner sand with a cleanup crew. Need to vacuum sand when you do water changes. Thought about sand sifting gobies? Bullet. Diamond, etc.

I completely read over the part on sand.

Yes, Ray is right with the gobies, they'll help to clear it up.

But they will make sand piles. And if any coral is on the sand, it'll likely get covered from time to time. That knife cuts 2 ways They'll help and drive you crazy at the same time, but some folks love theirs.
