What else should i add to my clean-up crew?

Hey everyone, i just got the water tested from my 29 gallon BioCube at my LFS. I ended up taking home 2 Emerald Crabs, a turbo snail and 2 cerith snails. What else should i add to complete my clean up crew?

I have about 20 blue leg hermits and 10*12 turbo snails in mybe...are you planning on keeping coral? Be careful of them emerald crabs they just might snack on some in search of food

Honestly the crew you have now should be enough. You really don't need a cuc, they do eat algae but add to the bioload as well. Turbos are poop machines

Thats why i only added one. I might add a few more snails or a hermit or two.

Make sure you have enough food to sustain them. Like Bribo stated, "cleanup crews" are completely unnecessary and most die of starvation or predation. A waste of money unless you like watching snails and crabs.
