    Poll: What's Does Your Clean-up Crew Consist Of??

    New poll time. Some people use clean-up crews and some don't as they feel what they eat, they poop out so what's the point. Let's see what people are using for their clean-up crew as well as those who don't use anything. This poll will allow multi votes.

    I voted "None". My last 3 tanks didn't have any clean-up crews. I did have a coral bandit shrimp, but he wasn't added in there to clean up any mess. He was just there to have a shrimp and I like how they look. I relied on good filtration and good husbandry to "clean-up" my tanks.

    I have cleaner shrimp and white sand sifting starfish..I was able to keep snails in my tank with no problem UNTIL I added a PT Trigger; now all my snails are gone, but tank is still algae free thanks to the yellow eye and naso tangs.

    I use serpent stars in my reef tanks and nothing in my seahorse tanks. I have NO snails or hermits or anything like that in any tanks.
