CUC size for a 220g

I was just wondering how many and what kind of clean up crew would be best for a 220g tank.

I was kidding lol I like my Cerith snail and they are harmless. They also stir up the sand bed when they bury.

You could easily do like 50+ in a tank this size.

50 hermits, 5 nassarius, 10-20 astrea. 5 emerald crabs. 4-7 sand sifting stars. 2-4 urchins. 5 cleaner shrimp. 10 peppermint shrimp.

Sounds good to me for a 220g
