Suggested clean up crew

30 gallon tank with 20 lbs liverock fixing to add additional 30 lbs liverock 20lbs livesand, tomato clown, percula clown, 2 red leg hermit, turbo snail, and nassirus snail. All levels are great except nitrate it is between 20-40ppm. Just curious how many more of clean up crew to add since tank is only about 3 months old.

wow...how are those clowns doing together?

Id get about 6 turbo snails and 4 more hermets depending on the size.

Surprisingly good most days unless tomato gets hungry then he chases percula to the tree. Would I need anymore nassiruss snails? Also what about extra shells for crabs?

Have you ever thought of buying a package to save money?

Yes but another person on forum advised me not to overload with cleanup crew since it is like a brand new tank. Plus need to get food and other things and if I buy enough the lfs gives discount.

Then just get some turbo snails if you dont want a full cleanup crew. They do an excellent job.

try to lower your nitrates before adding to your clean up crew.

Have tried pwc and just done a 50% instead of 10% to see if this makes difference. What is your suggestion on how many?
