Q11239 - FAQ: What clean up crew sould i have for a 40 gallon breeder tank?

Hello and thank you for your inquiry.

For a clean up crew it is a good idea to have a few different critters to help out, ones that will feed upon algae and ones that will help clean up excess food.  I suggest a mixture of a few different types of snails (Astraea, Nassarius if you have a sand bed, and some Cerith snails).  Along with them I will usually mix in a few hermit crabs (blue legged and scarlet).  I also like to include either brittle or serpent starfish to help feed upon excess food.

If there is anything else we can do for you please let us know.
