Inverts & Clean Up Crew

A clean up crew is made up invertebrates that help to naturally control and manage nuisance algae and detritus in your home aquarium. A clean up crew is an essential part of any reef aquarium. Here you can find the invertebrates and clean up crew we carry and ship across Canada. We sell turbo snails, emerald crabs, hermit crabs and many different kinds of snails. We also sell different reef shrimp like peppermint shrimp, cleaner shrimp, blood shrimp and harlequin shrimp.

You will find rare and unusual clean up crew at Fragbox Corals that won’t find anywhere else in the country guaranteed.
