really it depends on how much algae, detrius, and left over food you have in the tank

I don't know if both shrimps would be a good idea, but perhaps just one of the two mentioned would be fine. I would wait until you actually see a need for a cleanup crew then determine how much cleaners you would need.

I second the no-no on both a peppermint and scarlet skunk.

I'd go with just a scarlet skunk IMO.

Not a bad idea. I`ve had a few and they are good janitors.

My favorite cleaners are skunk cleaner shrimp or CBS along with hermits, snails, and a fighting conch to take care of your sand.
