If they have a variety of snails and hermits and snails you could get just about one of each kind they have, minus the turbo grazers. Those guys can bulldoze a small, or even a large, tank. You won't need a big clean up crew anyway.

Just make sure the snails and the hermits have food.

Not yet I'm leaving work in about 15mins then heading to the LFS, think I'm just gonna get some more crabs and snails for now. Too soon to get fish I think, and I wanna check out some corals while I'm there I'll keep ya posted.

I know I sound like a broken record but I put a new thread up in the proper category if it matters labeled "*OFFICIAL* 16G Bow front"

Now that my tank is cycled I figured id change it lol

Okay after adding 1 hermit crab and tested, all my other numbers are okay except for my pH. It went from 8.0 to 8.4

Why do you think that is??

The hermit wouldn't have caused it to jump. Take another reading...

That still won't boost your PH...
