Stocking a fuge

Alright so the fuge has been setup for a little while now and I'm starting to see some pods.... I'm also noticing detrius on the sandbed.....

I want to stock the fuge with some things either from my tank or from the LFS... but I don't want anything that eats Algae or could even possibly eat the pods...... any ideas?????? Something that eats poo would be nice..

nassaruis snails (my spelling may be a little off). They eat poo, I don't think they'd eat your macro but I could be wrong.

Yes, just make sure the hermits(supposing that's the type of crab your referring to) have larger shells to change into or they'll kill your snails for their shells.
