      Requests Heard - Here is a Good Option for a Clean Up Crew

      When planning for a clean up crew, most hobbyists forget the essential rules. You must have a balanced equation. What this means is that you need the eaters and poopers to be in balanced proportions. To many poopers, not enough eaters, you will have a serious algae outbreak.

      Hermits are great for cleaning up - from left over food, detritus, poop and more - they will eat it. Nassarius snails do an excellent job of removing dead, or decaying waste. Algae grazing snails are great - but always remember - if they dont have enough algae to eat, they will die and then the battle starts again with phosphates, nitrates and nitrites being available to feed the nuisance algae due to the death of the snails. This crew of reef cleaners is a fantastic Sampler Pack with 50 critters for Under $20 with FREE shipping.

      It's hit and miss with this company. Sometimes everything is great. Sometimes not. But for $20, I say its worth the risk. You'll never, never, never find a pack like this at a LFS. Well, you will, but not at that price.

      This right here. I read like seven pages worth of feedback on these guys and it was almost 50/50 negative and positive. Seems to tend towards bad experiences with fish and other sensitive stuff. Macros and cleanup seemed to tend towards the positive.
      I ordered about $80 in macro from them several months ago and was pleased - very well packaged, decent quantities, timely, decent price.

      Let's just say if you value customer service, this is not your company. I bought $150 worth of macros, cleanup crew, and I think a gorgonian, and pretty much everything was DOA. I talked to one of the girls through email about it and she said she would get back to me, guess what? She never did. I sent numerous emails to the company asking them to honor their guarantee about DOA's, but never heard anything back. The worst customer service I have ever experienced and will never refer anybody to them. I would cancel your order even if it's 20 bucks, you may just be throwing it away.

      I went with them for a clean up crew in the past. Let's just say they have and sent me the world smallest crabs! A lot of dead crabs as well! Not a fan!

      I've ordered CUC from them before and never had a problem. I think my order ships on Monday.

      I had a few issues with these guys, receiving dead fishes and they take sooo long to process and ship your order- not cool. But like other have mention its a 50/50 chance ordering here. There have been a few times where I have placed a big order and received everything healthy with no issues. Great place to shop for CUC, Better than any LFS around here.
