Note From Penny:
Cleanup critters are an absolutely necessary part of a healthy reef system...BUT...I never advocate buying them to "correct a problem".  If your tank has just cycled it's normal to have a bloom of algae and your cleanup crew should take care of it.  BUT...if your tank has the recommended number of each top 3 cleaners & you struggle with nuisance algae, cyano etc. then I highly recommend looking for the source of the problem, correct it & let your cleanup crew maintain things from there.  Check out my "Self Help" section to help identify problems.

Below are reef safe cleaners as well as being the most helpful to our reef tanks.

Algae Grazers    

Recommended per tank:
1 per gallon of tank
Example:  75g tank = 75 Astreas
This is a "rule of thumb", not an exact science.  Add to your population as you can until you reach
& maintain this approximate number.  Average size is 3/4-1 inch.
# 1 "Must Have"

Astrea Snails
For: 
Algae - Glass & Rocks

Astrea snails are fantastic algae eaters being quite at home on your rock or glass.  They are slower yet more thorough cleaners allowing coraline to take over where they've been.  Other "turbo" type snails aren't as thorough & can topple corals & rocks when larger.  Only downside to Astreas is that they can't right themselves when toppled upside down.  You must intervene...& they'll go on their merry way.  :0)

Nerite Snail

For:  Algae - Glass & Rocks

The Caribbean Nerite (Nerita tessellata) comes in a couple of different colors & are great cleaners of algae, diatoms and cyano.  They spend much of their time cleaning but being a tidal region snail will rest many times at the top of your tank during the day & become very active at night.  This species of Nerite is less prone to crawling out of your tank than others. These snails stay small & won't harm anything in the tank

# 4 Clean Up Crew!

Cerith Snail

For:  Algae - Sand & Rocks
These snails spend most of their time cleaning the top grains of your sand bed in search of uneaten food or algae. They sleep in the top inch of your sand bed.  This burrowing action helps to keep the sand bed moving and supple (needed for gas exchange). These are excellent for keeping the substrate clean of uneaten food, decaying matter, algae.....even cyano!

Banded Trochus Snail

For:  Algae - Glass & Rocks
 These snails target your rocks & glass.  They are faster movers than Astreas & most times can right themselves when they fall.  They are also one of the more "ornate" of the algae grazing snail family.

Turbo Grazer Snail

For:  Algae (including hard to remove turf) - Glass & Rocks
 These snails target your rocks & glass.  They are faster than other algae grazers and more powerful meaning they can topple small corals, rocks, clams etc. so beware of their strength
!  Recommended for established aquariums, FO or larger coral reefs & seahorse tanks.

Recommended per tank:

Example:  75g tank = 15 Tonga Nassarius
This is a "rule of thumb", not an exact science.  Add to your population as you can until you reach
& maintain this approximate number. Average size is 1-2 inch & can vary in color .  Of all sand cleaners, this is a "Should Have" in any reef tank.

Sand Sifting Cucumber

For:  Top Sand Stirring & Scavenging

Cucumbers are fantastic top sand cleaners (they do not bury).  They physically eat sand grains & produce clean sand waste.  They will travel next to the base of your rocks targeting areas where detritus collect.  Don't be alarmed if you don't see much of them as they prefer the nooks & cranny areas of your rock work!

This video was taken just moments after the star was released from it's shipping bag after acclimation.  Now free, the star is literally stretching it's legs & enjoying the newfound freedom.  They can also swing across a tank using the same leg motions!  Just stunning!

Red Feather/Sea Lilly Starfish

These gorgeous starfish are completely reef safe.  Best in established reef tanks 6 months + old as they are plankton feeders.  Will accept frozen cyclopeeze & PE Mysis gently applied to the outer portions of their legs.  If hungry they will hang onto the food & travel it to their mouth.

.Each anemone is a unique animal.  Expect some color variation as different lighting and how inflated or deflated will affect how they "look".  Normally arrives mostly closed but will open upon acclimation to your tank.  Size is based on their "foot" dimension yet the body will expand many times larger depending on mood & tank conditions.  Feed once or twice a week with PE Mysis shrimp.  Note:  it is common for these anemones to "deflate" when digesting & pooping a meal. Bubble Tip Anemones

Entacmaea quadricolor

 

All clownfish species are known to go to this anemone!  It is the only species I will sell due to the high aggressiveness & mortality rate of others.  The BTA readily makes babies of itself and is the least aggressive & most reef safe of all species.
