Get some red legged hermits, about 5 and a emerald crab that will do!

The hermit crabs are about 1.50$ and the emerald is 6$ so they are pretty cheap but only get 5 hermits because they will fight if there are more and 1-2 emeralds. Also as someone said before you should get a peppermint shrimp they are great and are always on the job

You don't need ANY crabs or snails. All you need to do is feed sparingly and do water changes to remove excessive nutrients. Increase the flow inside the tank if a lot of uneaten food and fish poop is settling on the rock.
All adding a bunch of eating, pooping critters is going to do is shrink your wallet.
