With a 60 fowlr I'd get a couple of cleaner shrimp, a star fish, around 10 crabs and 10 snails.

Just in case you don't know...you don't "need" a CUC. If you like little critters, then they are okay to have. There are benefits, but sometimes limitations, that go with them. Different crabs and snails do different things, so its good to know what you want them cleaning up and buy accordingly. Some eat detritus (poop), others algae, others move sand around. Starfish are best in established tanks and some (like Linkias) are extremely difficult to keep alive, even in ideal situations. Many people buy them and they die of starvation.
