I used to have one:
fowlr predator with the following

Yellow tang
snowflake eel
barred moray eel
humu trigger

As far as the clean up crew there really arent a ton of options because all your typical stuff will become food really quick! I did a ton of water changes and was way over skimming and it seemed to keep fairly clean.

I recommend a puffer, might be a tight squeeze but they are awesome fish. I wish I could put one in my reef tank without devastation.

Regarding the Clean Up Crew, has anyone tried Long Spined Sea Urchins? They can be helpful for algae, and would seem difficult for most predators to kill/eat.

I have a 210g predator my stock list is:

Porc Puffer
Goldflake Angel
Sharptail Eel
Lunare Wrasse
Blackback butterfly
Saddleback Butterfly
Blonde Naso Tang

I had a marbeled coral cat shark, but I gave it to someone with a bigger tank.

Working on getting a radiata lion and prolly another butterfly and regal angel.

As for CuC your best option would be the long spine black urchin imo.

I have a stars and strips puffer, mappa puffer, Lawn mower blenny, and a couple damsels I can't catch to get them out of there. I have a long tentacle urchin and 2 halloween crabs. They leave these guys only but eat anything else you put in the tank.
