melous58,
Thank you so much. I went to the lfs today, and they didn't have any snails or crabs. They suggested a chocolate chip starfish, When I looked at them one looked like it was eating a fish, and I've learned my lesson on buying from them without checking out things first. In addition to what you suggested, would any of these be advisable: a neon goby, scooter blenny, serpant star, or a sallylight foot. Also would these be compatible with my CBS, damsel and clown.

The chocolate chip star is not coral or anenome safe so if you plan on having corals then you should skip the CC star. I`ve had a salley light foot crab several times and they were excellent janitors in my tank but I have heard others say they had one that was aggressive with other fish. I never saw that with mine but I dont want to discount the experience of others. IMO they are great janitors and reef safe to boot. As far as a goby if you are talking about the 46 gallon tank a bullet goby would be a good clean up crew member. They spend all day sifting and keep your sand pretty clean. I have a black sailfin Blenny and they are good additions because they pick at the rock keeping it clean. Mine in the pic is 8 yrs old. Never had a scooter, Sorry. I`ve heard mixed results with the serpant stars. Some have had no problem with them while others have had them go after small fish. Here are some more links on those I mentioned.
