Question Clean-up Crews

I plan to get a 75 gallon FOWLR tank.The stock list is this:

x1 sixline wrasse
x2 ocellaris clowns
x1 yellowhead jawfish
x1 royal gramma
x1 flame angel
x1 longnose hawkfish

Can I have a clean-up crew consisting of:

x2 emerald crabs
x8 electric blue legged hermit crabs
x2 turbo snails
.......................
.....................

Is this a good clean-up crew?Other ideas welcomed! :p

Personally, i would skip the hermits and even the emerald crabs and go for some Cerith, Nessarius, and Bumblebee snails, as well as the Turbo snails.
