Picotope cleanup crew


Recommended Posts

Just wondering how many cleaners I should have in my 3 gallon pico. Right now I've got just one hermit. What's working for other people?

get some snails ... like one or two nassarius snails ... and some astrea's and you should be good


2 Astreas, 3 Mexican Red Legs, and 1 dwarf (REALLY small) blue leg hermit.

I have 1 small blue legged (in the fuge) and 1 tri-color hermit (not sure if it's the same thing but he's quite a bit larger) in the display. I use a super nimble nano to clean the glass.

In my 2.5 I have the following and it has worked great for this tank.


I have 1 Nassarius, 1 Cerith, 1 Astrea and 2-3 Stomatellas that crawled out of the LR. The Nass. & Cerith keep the sand stirred and pretty clean, and the Astrea keeps the rockwork almost spotless. I do still swipe the glass with a magfloat once a week.
