new clean up crew?

new clean up crew?

yeah i think i will just go for manly snails say 50,

30 turbo, astrea,
12 cerith,
6 nassarius,

and then 12 hermits,
6 red legs and
6 blue legs,

and then two cleaner shrimps

basically i have just decided to leave out the super snails (trochus) as they are bigger and can knockin things over and fall over and cant right themselves,

do you think this sounds okay?

Trochus are one of the best snails you can get. They *can* right themselves (unlike Astrea), and do not get big and clumsy (like Turbos). They are a little pricier than Astreas/Turbos, but work much harder at *cleaning*.

What size tank is this for?

You couldn't pay me to put blue legged hermits in my tank. Evil!! JMO.
