These guys are an awesome addition to any reef clean up crew. They will clean places where most other members of your crew could never hope to squeeze into.

Very mobile, and with a voracious appetite for meaty leftovers around the tank. These guys clean all around the live rock, and even inside the rocks. I would seriously recommend anyone get themselves one or more because they really do make a difference. Less leftovers = less excess in unwanted substances in your water chemistry. No one who owns a reef tank should not not own one of these.

Like any invertebrate copper medications are not tolerated and changes in oxygen levels for these guys is another big issue. They won't tolerate changes in levels of oxygen. Visibility wise, you won't see a lot of them, but you will surely know that they're there. They are a fantastic addition to a reef crew.
