How often should I replace my reef cleaning crew?

Greetings to all,

It has been 14 months since I added the 130 gallon rated cleaning crew. Now I don't see as many snails, hermit crabs and it has been months since I saw the emeral crabs. It is time to restock? DP

Restocking CUC is an on-going thing. Pretty much every time I go to an LFS for something I'll pick up more snails or crabs, so I'm constantly replenishing the CUC.

In the DC Metro Area? Check out GWAPA and WAMAS

Constant replenishment can imply that you have too many to start with. Depends on why they're dieing off.
