add your clean up crew slowly to make sure their is enough detritus and algae to feed them.

I am a fan of worms for CUC. They are like the maid who leaves the mint on the pillow. You only see them by accident, but they do their job everyday.
What kind of worms would you suggest? And do all hermits go after the snails? I've heard that the red-legged hermits are more aggressive, but that blue-legged hermits shouldn't mess with the snails as much.
