Good cleaner Snail/Crab for Reef Tank?
I've been reading about cleaner snails/crabs... All that I have found say they can hurt coral. This would not be good for my reef tank.
Does anyone have any suggestions about good snails/crabs for a reef tank? I especially need them for hair algae. I noticed yesterday that the hair algae has started to grow...
My tank is 30g. How many of them would I need to be effective?
some good ones i have come across with(but have become dinner to my yellow tang :D ) are scarlet red hermit crabs, blue legged hermit crabs, turbo snails and carith snails. a cleaner shrimp works too. they are always on the clean, or they make stations and clean your fishies :D
check out www.garf.org it will have all the info you need.
Cerith, turbo, and nassarius snails. Red legged, blue legged and zebra striped hermits. Porcelain crabs and urchins add a bit of flash.
