This is a stupid question.

I went to the lfs and bought a clean up crew. Blue leg hermits, turbo snails, a brit. star, and a sand sifting star. And I forgot to ask them what they eat. The lsf store doesn't open for another 3 hours and so I have nobody to ask. So what do they eat after all the tank is clean?

The tank is only a 12 gal nano cube with 15-18 pounds of lr. There are not fish in there yet.... Should there be?

Thanks for the input on the sand star. My next door neighbor has a huge 250 so maybe ill just give it to him. So should I worry about there diet? I let the nano cycle for about 2 weeks and a half is there enough stuff in there for them to munch on?

Yea, I would supplement them with anyting really. The blue legs will eat anything, the snails would like seaweed, as stated above, and the star should eat anything. That is neat that you have a neighbor for things like that. Use him, he could be a lot of help.

My cleanup crew in my otherwise empty tank gets fed sinking pellets

http://www.marinedepot.com/md_viewIt...product=ON2613

The nassarius snails come up from the sand and run (run? ooze?) around like crazy. I feed 4-5 pellets a day and figure that they'll at least find one every few days each. I don't want to overfeed and
