Clean up crew

Hey, right now I'm Cycling a 55 gallon tank. All that's in the tank is 60 pounds of sand and two uncooked unseasoned shrimp. I don't have money to get LR just yet but I was wondering: When algae starts showing up, what will be best to just clean my sand and glass? I don't want to waste money on something that will starve.

I agree, you aren't going to get much growth without the LR.

You'll get some, just not much. You may be able to add, like 5 snails or so and it'll handle most of it. Or get a cleaning magnet and wipe the glass clean putting that junk into the water column to be skimmed out.
