Our Saltwater Fish Store
Saltwater Invertebrates at our Tropical Fish Store
We have the widest variety of Saltwater invertebrates, which are also known as inverts. The majority of our invertebrates are hardy and provide for the ideal marine life for aquarists of all skill levels, from novice to expert. Starfish, Urchins, Clams, Scallops, Anemone’s, Sea Sponge, Sea Cucumbers, Shrimp, Fan Worms, Octopus, Lobsters, and so on and so on are just some of the varieties that we carry. But one thing that all of these species have in common is that they are invertebrates, which means that they do not have a backbone. Saltwater invertebrates are the only type of animal that fall into this category. Some species of marine invertebrates, such as nudibranchs, feather dusters, and anemone, are kept in marine aquariums for their appealing aesthetic qualities, whereas other marine invertebrates serve as the “workhorse” of the reef aquarium, ensuring that the environment remains both clean and healthy.
We are able to classify the vast majority of marine invertebrates into one of two types according to the tasks that they carry out as part of the reef tank maintenance staff. Scavengers are found in the marine environment and are invertebrates that rummage through the substrate in search of decomposing organic matter. This is of the utmost significance as the byproducts of decomposing organic matter include ammonia, nitrates, and phosphates, all of which are known to be harmful to aquatic and plant life respectively. By getting rid of the garbage, the water quality can be kept at a level that is better for the people living there. Invertebrates that live in saltwater aquariums, such as the Coral Banded Shrimp and the Nassarius Snail, take great pleasure in feeding on decomposing organic matter and food that has been partially consumed. They constitute the ideal sanitation workforce for the removal of organic waste.
Herbivorous algae eaters are the members of the second category of reef-cleaning invertebrates. A certain amount of algae growth is both typical and healthy, but an excessive amount of algae growth is not only ugly but can also be harmful to the fish and plants in the area. There are some hardworking invertebrates that live in saltwater, such as the Red Scarlet Hermit Crab, which enjoys eating hair algae, and the Emerald Crab, which will rid a tank of bothersome bubble algae. The Cerith Snail and the Dwarf Red Leg Hermit Crab are the organisms that will maintain a clean environment for the Cyano Bacteria. In order to get rid of the brown or green film algae that covers your aquarium glass, all you need to do is choose some crustaceans that eat both film algae and diatoms.
