Turbo snails are good clean uo crew members. They will help keep the glass and sometimes LR clean. Depending on how established your tank, I would say a dozen to start with.

Not too much that as keeping glass clean. Hermit crabs will do the dead fish in. reason I was asking about how old tank was because newer tanks wont have that much for them to eat as much as older tanks would. I`d recommend a clean up crew.

Hermit crabs,snails,crabs and shrimp and other inverts that help keep your tank clean. Clean up crew is what they call the package of these that you order.
