Clean Up Crews are a natural, efficient way to combat aquarium algae and debris in a reef tank. These small animals keep busy in your tank removing non-living organic matter, sifting through and aerating the sand, and keeping harmful nuisance algae under control. Clean up crews consist of a variety of animals and it’s important you have a clean up crew working away in your tank.

Having a proper clean-up crew can help keep your tank sparkling clean while limiting the amount of work you have to do in terms of scraping the glass or picking algae of your live rock. By nature, the invertebrates that make up our aquarium clean up crews are vital to establishing a healthy ecosystem as each organism fills a different niche in cleaning up after coral and fish.

A Clean Up Crew will consist of snails, sea urchins, shrimps, starfish or decapod crustaceans such as small, reef-safe shrimps or crabs. While dominated by invertebrates, there are a few small fish species that fit the bill. Indeed, to achieve maximum cleaning efficiency, the more the diverse the crew, the better!
