Clean Up Crew

Post by Cyn » Wed May 11, 2016 11:18 pm

I'm trying to find a nice clean up crew that won't eat my chocolate chip starfish and that my GSP puffer won't chase after though it isn't really aggressive at all. He's been good with ghost shrimp in the past. But not sure how he feels about colorful shrimp. Any suggestions?

My gsp has always left ghost shrimp alone, but devoured a dozen peppermint shrimps. Not too familiar with chocolate chips but hermits are good as well as very large turbos and nerites. Then tend to keep themselves close enough to the glass and don't get picked at.

I have 2 large turbos, tuxedo urchin & electric blue leg hermit that have been fantastic on rocks. Fighting conch & orange lip conches are fantastic cleaning sand & fun to watch too (very quick to duck eyes etc inside at approach of any fish so they've been safe from puffers so far. Their shells seem too hard to crack). They have all been very peaceful
