thanks, now that we are on the right thread.

What should i get as my cleaning crew.
The guy at the LFS told me that for that size tank (90), i should have 25 nassarus, 25 hermit crabs, 3 emerald crabs, and i think he said 25 turbos.

I think he's pulling my legs.

what do you guys think should be a good clean up crew?

so maybe i'll settle for 15 turbos, 15 nassarus, 15 hermit crabs and 2 emerald crabs.

When should i add them before the fish or can i wait on it a little longer? and how much of the cuc should i add at a time?
thanks

I would cut down on the hermit crabs. They tend to kill your snails for their shells. and you don't really need 15 hermits anyway.

I agree....cut down on the hermits or buy plenty of extra empty shells.
