New Critters

I know there are mixed opinions on "clean up crews" but I just LOVE critters. The ghost shrimp, ramshorn snails, and pond snails in my planted tanks are more fun to watch than the fish So I just picked up the following for my 40g reef:

5 Nasarius snails
3 Astrea snails
1 Emerald Crab (he's my new buddy)
3 Dwarf Red Leg Hermit
3 Dwarf Blue Leg Hermit

The hermits scattered, the nassarius buried themselves, the astrea started climbing up the liverock, and the crab started munching on some hair algea.

I want to get one or two shrimp as well. Was thinking of cleaner shrimp
