You just stared the tank two day ago, I would not add the hermits and snail, most likely you'll lose them.

Took me 3-1/2 weeks in my 45 with lots of good live rock and sand. Was just able to add two clowns, 10 crab and 5 snails. I have been told that is pushing it but I plan on watching it close. So far all are doing great.
