Thanks for the suggestions! I was looking at the "Choosing Cleanup Crew" sticky and those three were on my list of considerations. Although, I have a love/hate relationship with nerites. Those little ******** get out of my FW tanks all the time! I actually found one upstairs once! It sounds like the SW versions might be the same lol. Are the nassarius and cerith snails able to right themselves? Or will I have to help them out?Tell her we recommend to start with nerite, cerith, and nassirus (spelled wrong most likely) snails.
After they are doing fine add an emerald crab or two. When those are good a cleaner shrimp would be great. After that perhaps a blood red fire shrimp. Perhaps 6 months after that the more fancy ones.
Don't add peppermint shrimp or coral banded shrimp. Peps may disturb/munch your zoas and coral banded are too aggressive to other shrimp for me.
