Thats why we don't tell you to remove them by hand, they will grow back with a vengenance if you don't get the whole thing out.
You can throw the rock in boiling water, hit it with peroxide and bleach. You will kill off all the bilogicals.

What cleanup species that also look pretty?

I recently got a cleanup crew for my new (used) tank, there are some white cone-like snails, blue-legged hermitcrabs and some (pretty) red hermits, 2 types of crabs, one brouwn spider-like with brown/white striped legs and 2 greenish crabs with one bigger claw each. I also got 2 snails with a long eye?-stalk up front (apparently sifting through sand). Is there any other cleaner uppers that look prettier than these guys? Some sand sifting stars or more colorful hermits? I also received some green grass- or weed like stuff, what does that do (the green crabs like to eat that, so I took it out).

Green Hair Algae. The Emerald Crabs will eat that. There are a few Snails out there that will eat that also.
