Okay so the time has come for me to get my clean up crew. I have some what of an idea of what I want, but I don't know what i need.

I know snails, hermits, and shrimp are essential to have, but how many each is necessary for my set up? also what about blennies? I'm interested in those little guys to!

no CUC is a necessity, it's whatever you want and /or like.

Blennies are awesome, I have several. Great little guys

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I use both my siphon an my net with no probs, banded coral shrimp are also cleaners. I would only do one shrimp or else there could be territory issues. Look at sexy shrimp, an Pom Pom crabs

Test your tank to see if its cycled, don't add a live cleaner shrimp until the tank has stabilized for a 2 months

Okay, I plan on going to Petco for a test kit, some more rock and to get a few things for my freshwater tanks this week.

If my tank is cycled, can I take out the dead shrimp and add some snails and hermits next weekend?
