    Hi All,

    I followed the advice to start with a clean up crew:

    2 x turbo snails
    2 x red legged hermit crabs
    2 x Scarlet skunk cleaner shrimps
    2 x Blue tuxedo urchin`s

    The algae is starting to go away and is less that half what it use to be... how does one know how big your clean up crew can be? DT 1200 x 600 x 600...

    the tank is now cycling for 4 weeks and is going now for the 5th week... want to take it slow befor adding any fish/corals...

    Any advice on a clean up crew???

    Kind Regards,

    Express Reef / E.R

    thats perfect, what are your params?

    i usually base the clean up crew on how much food i see uneaten and detritus lying around
    but that looks good for now
