I would have to disagree with the first part. Astrea's are more prone to toppling and do not have the ability to right themselves properly often starving or become a tankmates dinner. A turbo can right itself very fast.
As to the "better' choice for cleaning, I have peronally found turbo's to be exceptional. They are however much more active at night than the day. It also depends on what fish you have in the tank to how often you see animals at the tasks chosen for.
