125 gallon clean up crew


Tank should be up and running in less then a week! Rock is already cycled and cooked (for 3 months) and doing very well. Going to make sure it doesn't touch air for more then a few seconds so I don't cycle again. Obviously I will watch the water levels for a few days before adding any live stock. Anyways, my current clean up crew that I will transfer over to the big tank is about 30 very very small dwarf cerith snails, about 5 nerites, 4-5 florida ceriths, 4-5 nassarius, and two emerald crabs. What should I add to the clean up crew for the big tank?

If he did that he'd had more than what he needs by far. He already has a decent size from his current tank.

Hey guys quick question didnt wanna make a new thread. My tank is started and so far I got my 5 nassarius, 5 nerites, 4-5 florida ceriths. What else should I be adding at this point, or how much more? Reason I am asking again is because, there is no die off in my tank, rock has been cycled for 3 weeks, didn't use live sand (hate that crap). In a few words, the tank is too clean for my permanent clean up crew. How many more snails and what kinds should I be adding at this point in my tank's life?
