Noobie Invert Question

Hey everyone and early happy 4th of July!! I have a 46 gallon Bowfront and I have 40 pounds of Carib Sea Reef rock and 15 pounds of Figi live rock to seed it. 60 pounds of live sand by Ocean Direct. I have some Dr. Times one and only to also kick start the bacteria. I was wondering what should I use as a clean up crew. I know it shouldn't be much right now, so what should I start with? I LOVE crabs and shrimp. But kinda scared the crabs will make a feast of the fish and shrimp. Also can I have coral banded shrimp and cleaner shrimp in the same tank?

Wait until your cycle is complete before adding a cuc. I'd keep a banded shrimp or a cleaner shrimp; not both.

I was thinking a mated pair of banded but I don't want them attacking my fish..
