No problems with nassarius snails staying upright.

If you are getting shrimp then you will need to make sure and drop the Hawknose from your final fish list. They will make a meal of those lovely shrimp.

As for the clean up crew I've never been a fan of the bumblebee snails they have a nasty rep for eating other snails. Hermits will do the same thing for the shells. BTW good rule of thumb for your final clean up crew (at full fish load) is 1 cleaner per gallon of water. Eventually you will have a total of 70-80 snails ect in your system. Also keep in mind that the clean up crew is something that you will be replacing through out the life of the system. Nature after all is nature and you will have some loss no matter what you do. I got the the point of adding a dozen or more snails to my system every other month.

The Hawaiian zebra hermits are good because they are Herbivores.
