FOWLR system, what criters to avoid?

Besides mantis shrimp what other criters should i try to avoid when I am going through my lr? Currently the tank has about 13 mini blue hermit crabs and 1 snail.

FLAT worms. I had a few, but they are VERY hard to see they match the rock perfectly... and Isopods are very nasty too. I had one of these and I thougt it was a baby mantis... Aptsasia (rock anemones). just for starters

will aptsasia actually "hurt" anything in a FOWLR system? Are there any criters that "graze" on aptsasia?

They will take over the tank and aren't particulary pretty. Peppermint shrimp are supposed to eat them.
