Inverts for 75gall?

what inverts should I get and how many for my 75gall flowlr? I was thinking somthing like

1x brittle sea star
1x blue or orange linckia
2x skunk cleaner shrimp
1x coral banded shrimp (?)
?x other shrimp?
(I really like shrimp, love the way they move etc.)
?x emerald crab
tons of tiny hermits
tons of snails as well...
maybe some other crabs that I dont know of?

That should be fine. Also consider the blood red/fire shrimp. Amazing color and a great addition.

IMO forget the CBS and get the blood shrimp that Brian was talking about. Too many horror stories about the CBS. Also the licknia star will need a mature tank.

I have heard horror stories about the cbs, so I will drop that!
Im planning on waiting about 6-8 months for the linckia...is that a good while or should I wait a year?

Closer to the 8 months should be fine. Good Luck.

x emerald crab
They can possibly cause problems, especially when they get larger. Avoid crabs in a reef. There are very few reef safe crabs. Most should be kept w/ caution, at best. Porcelin crabs are OK as well as pom-pom crabs. There may be a couple others as well. Search for possible issues before buying anything w/ claws heh. HTH
