Cleanup Crews What When and How

A cleanup crew or CUC as you will see it abbreviated a lot online, is a collection of creatures you can add to your aquarium that perform various beneficial functions. But which ones do you need and what do they do?

Tuxedo Urchin

The tuxedo urchin is often overlooked by many new aquarists. It is not one of the primary mentions for your clean-up crew, nor is it making any great beginner fish list. When you get down to it though if you have a fairly established aquarium, say 9-12 months or more, this is one of the best algae eaters you can add.
