    there was a thread about this last week...
    but snails are a good start.. lots of people dont like the crabs..
    I like them.. but i'm finding out that its eating just about anything it can get in its mouth.. including little stars, worms etc.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    With my experience so far, i've found hermit crabs to be a pain in the butt. Basically in my two tanks, they spend all their time fighting. When they aren't fighting, they'll be picking at one of my corals !!!!

    Nasty little buggers, so if I were to buy a large quantity of cleaners in the future the majority of them would be snails.

    But I think they recommend 1-2 common astrea snails per gallon.
