What do I include in my clean up crew for new FOWLR tank

New tank, cycled and a happy little cardinal swimming around for over a week. Time to add some clean up crew to help with what my cardinal is NOT eating... but afraid to add too many to start.

What should I start with.

Nassarius Snails would be a good start.

no your adding them to eat left overs if you feed them that defeats the purpose
if you have that much left over food feeding a cardinal lighten up your feedings

Agreed. Feeding less will do better in the long run. If I were adding, I would probably only do a few for starters (maybe half a dozen or so) with only one small fish.
