Reef Tank Tuneup™ (Over 50 Reef Grazers, 6 different species)

trocus grazers
Over 50 hardy Indo-Pacific specimens (6 species) of well proven invertebrate grazers (snails and hermits).

This package is sized for a 20-55 gallon reef tank system. It will aid in the control of diatoms on the glass and live rock, and will help prevent the development of filamentous "turf" algae of various types on the rock and sandbed.

Controlling the growth of diatoms and filamentous algae species in your reef tank is an important and necessary first step toward creating conditions conducive to the growth of desirable pink, red and purple coralline algae on your live rocks.

The MicroHermits in this package are effective, reef-safe sand stirrers and detritivores. They will help clean the live rocks as well as the sand or gravel at the base of the tank. This will help prevent the accumulation of waste and the development of anaerobic (dead) spots in the top layer of the sandbed. MicroHermits do not consume or damage coralline algae in any way.
