predator tank clean up crew

I have a puffer, picasso, wrasse and some other friendlier fish. Unless I get large snails the wrasse eats them. Are there any CUC's that can survive the killer crew?

Tbh you don't need a cuc per say just get some fish that move the sand around and that will nip at the rock to clear anything on there. I have a valentine puffer and yellow headed goby which help keep my tank clean just in they're natural behaviour. Besides if you don't over feed and keep parameters good you should have much to clean up to my knowledge

I have three sharks Stingrays a lion and two wrasse. The wrasse can be a problem but if u get them to the rocks they will make it. I have about 100 or more snails and 100 or more hermit crabs. I also have two starfish

1000 gallons. 7ft x 7ft x 3ft. There is a lot of other stuff as well those were just the ones that are more dangerous to smaller items in the tank.
