OIC, that's cool. I'm sure there's a reefing club around there. Again check with MASNA.org

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...

well went and got more cleanup crew today to take care of some of the fim algea, now I have 2 jumbo turbos, 10 astrea snails, 10 blue leg hermits and 1 sand sifting star, Im going to go get 3 pepermint shrimp and 1 emerald crab and 10 nassarius snails. You think that be too much for the bio cube??

make sure to add some empty shells for the hermit crabs. if they dont have any ( sometimes even when they do) they wont hesitate to rip snails from their shells. i personally am more of a fan of skunk cleaner shrimp and suggest 1 of them as they tend to have more of a personality. if you do go with the peps i would only get 2 as getting 3 will lead to the odd man out and will end up dead. i personally am not a fan of crabs either as they are opportunistic and will eat what they can, given the chance but this is your tank and thats my opinion.
i think it sounds good to me, the very worst thing that will happen is a snail or two will die due to the lack of food or you wont have enough and its not a problem to add more. again i think you should be alright though.

yea I already have one pep and was going to get one more, but I like the skunk, but they aint cheep, my lfs wants 29.95 for one, but I like the emerald, Ive watched the one they have at the lfs in there 14 gallon show nano with corals other inverts, clown and anenome's, he seems to do fine in there I actually have to look for him thought and sometimes hes really hiding good

yea skunk cleaners are about half that around me, alittle more depending on size. the fire red cleaners are more expensive.

again the emerald crab is totally your choice, my opinion for my tank is no crabs, lol. i dont even like hermits i have maybe 2 in my display

i do however have an arrow crab on order for my clubs invert group buy.. cool looking crabs but unfortunatly to large for your tank

i would still try finding a local reefing club. you should most likely be able to pick up some extra pounds of rock from there.
