Little heard of Clean up Crew

So we all know the drill. hermits and snails. ho hum. LOL I was looking through reefcleaners inventory and saw some interesting clean up crew members.

First off, Limpets. Anyone have or had any of these? Are they neat or boring? I love having small critters in my tank and this guy seems different. Second creature i am pondering is the fuzzy chiton. Looks like a pretty effective algae eater and is also not seem everyday.

is there a reason why you dont see these guys more often or are they an undiscovered gem?

Here are the links just in case you haven't heard of them

ReefCleaners.org | Clean Up Crews and Macro Algae - Fuzzy Chiton*

ReefCleaners.org | Clean Up Crews and Macro Algae - Limpets*

Looking for any and all input on these guys. I plan on placing an order within a week or so and might include some of them.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

They are not going to help with "cleaning" anything. If you want them for diversity, that's fine. I usually get them for free with my rock. I'm sure you'll have some limpets show up eventually.

Great link, just bookmarked it! Thanks!

I just wanted to get some new creatures, not necessarily to eat anything in particular. Just a bonus if they do.

They are reef safe according to reefcleaners so I would guess it would be ok to get a few?
Have any of you guys had these critters before?

I have both that came with some LR. I don't tend to see the chitons at all. The limpets do move around and about. Maybe the chitons just look ugly to me.
