3 or 4 Nassarius will mop up leftover food on the sand very quickly and turn it over a bit. Ceriths are slow but thorough cleaners and won't fall over to their deaths like Astreas (which are otherwise good as well). If you go with just ceriths I'd try 10-20 to start. Hermit crabs can be entertaining to watch, but they will probably kill a snail every once in a while (you can provide excess shells to try and prevent this) and can knock over loose coral frags. Peppermint shrimp are also interesting for variety but can steal food from LPS corals. I use a little bit of all of the above
