Clean up crew

What would be a good clean up crew for my 20 gallon tank? I have 2 clownfish and 1 damselfish1 bubbletip anemone and a chocolate chip starfish. It has about 30 pounds of live rock and 20 pounds of live sand. I ha be a penguin 350 filter on it a forklift skimmer that I'm really not sure if its doing anything besides bubbling and a powerhead that does 150 gph. I have 6 blue leg hermits in there now.

You don't need a clean up crew. Your 6 hermits are plenty.

I agree, clean up crew isnt needed unless you like them. Just another pooping and eating critter for the tank. lol

You arent going for corals anytime soon are you? The choclate chip starfish isnt reefsafe, they like to eat corals typically.

Just a heads up.

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

Thanks. And no corals until I regime the star in my 90 gallon when I set it up. Have to get a sump and rodi unit before I get it going. Then going to make my 20 gallon and my 20 xtra high into coral tanks. Will be a while for that though
