I also have a fairly large Hermit Crab now that I dont have anyone that will eat him. He does an amazing job of turning over the sand. He moves along like a rototiller sifting through the sand and cleaning. When I first introduced him, the tank would get cloudy when he was working but now that has all been filtered out. My water quality has improved.
Funny you mentioned the hermit crab, one time after fishing I had about 6 live shrimp left over so i threw them into my tank. for about 2-3 every night my tank would be super cloudy, but then after that it stayed so clean I was amazed.... great cleaners.
