I'd go for 5 Caribbean red legged, blue eyed hermits, 5 turbo snails and maybe 2 nassarius snails for a start. Then add more later if you see it isn't enough. Then shrimps are up to you, maybe 2 cleaner shrimps and some peppermint shrimps if you have aiptasia.

Throw in an urchin, algae eating machines
Don't urchins also eat coraline? I may be wrong on this just head it sometime over the years.

Got old fashion convict surgeon for algae issues. Emerald crabs are also good for cuc. Can never have too many turbos

I am not so sure about shrimps as part of a clean-up crew . :whistling:

Urchins tend to grind down on rock but are excellent at keeping algae in check. A sacrifice I am willing to make. Tuxedo/collector urchins are a good choice.
