Common types of livestock our clients keep in their reef aquariums

Reef-Safe Fish

Reef-safe fish: These are fish species that are known to be peaceful and not harmful to other inhabitants of the reef aquarium. They include species like clownfish, tangs, gobies, and blennies.

Soft Corals

These are corals that lack a hard skeleton and are known for their unique and colorful shapes. They are relatively easy to care for and can add a lot of visual interest to a reef aquarium. Examples include Xenia, Mushrooms, and Zoanthids.

We can help you select and care for soft corals, ensuring that they receive appropriate lighting and water chemistry. They do not require as much calcium and alkalinity as hard corals, but most can benefit from regular feedings of phytoplankton and zooplankton.

Hard Corals

These are corals with a hard, calcified skeleton that provide a structural backbone for the reef. They require specific conditions to thrive and can be more challenging to care for than soft corals. Examples include Acropora, Montipora, and Favites.

Our aquarists can assist with the care of hard corals, by balancing water flow, lighting, chemistry, and nutrient levels.


Shrimps are popular additions to reef aquariums for their fascinating behavior and contribution to the ecosystem. They can help with algae and detritus control and can form symbiotic relationships with fish, anemones, and corals. Examples include Cleaner Shrimp, Peppermint Shrimp, and Pistol Shrimp.

We can help you choose and care for shrimp species that benefit your aquarium, and ensure that their husbandry needs are met.

Crabs and Hermit Crabs

Crabs and hermit crabs are also popular additions to reef aquariums. They can help with algae control and add visual interest to the aquarium. However, some species can be aggressive toward other inhabitants. Examples include Blue Leg Hermit Crabs, Porcelain Crabs, and Sally Lightfoot Crabs.

We can supply you with compatible species of crabs and hermit crabs to help you ensure that they do not harm other inhabitants of the aquarium.

Snails: We can help you choose and care for snail species like Astrea Snails, Nassarius Snails, and Turbo Snails, which play an important role in maintaining the cleanliness of the aquarium.

Other inverts: Our experienced technicians can assist you with the care of other invertebrate species, such as starfish, sea urchins, and sea cucumbers, ensuring that they receive appropriate care and conditions to thrive in your reef aquarium.
