Hello,

my 20 gallon waterbox currently has these inverts

2 scarlet hermits
2 blue legged hermits
4 trochus snails
2 nassarius snails
2 cerith snails
1 tiger conch
3 bumble bee snails

future inverts
1 cleaner shrimp
1 blue tuxedo urchin
1 Pom Pom crab

let me know if it’s too much?
Only fish is 2 clowns and 1 banggai.
Thank you

Never too much cleanup crew. Banded trochus do work, i used to have 3 and about 5 blue leg hermits in a 10g and the glass stayed really clean.

Eventually the scarlet hermits will kill the blue legs and some snails. Blue legs are good for nanos, they only attack their own kind and only over disputes. Just have some bigger shells than the hermits you currently have for the alpha crab to move into. Soon youll have a graveyard of shells (and coral) like me lol

Some fish will kill inverts so do some research on any fish you're thinking of adding.
