There aren’t many outlets where you can find a wide selection of invertebrates for fish tanks. A saltwater aquarium might not be complete without some form of aquatic life other than a fish. While tropical fish are the “headliners” of the fish tank, invertebrates can really make a fish tank look lively and unique. Coral Reef Farm prides itself on the number of invertebrates for fish tanks we have available.
Fish are great, don’t get us wrong, but there’s nothing quite so alien as the invertebrates found throughout the world’s oceans. Normally, these invertebrates can only be found while snorkeling, or perhaps a trip to the local aquarium. It is a rare few who have an actual sea cucumber in an indoor saltwater aquarium. Scallops are a delicacy but many people haven’t seen an actual live scallop. Our flame scallops look like something from another planet.
Coral Reef Farms also has a wide selection of crabs—from hermit crabs to the more traditional spider-like Sally Lightfoot Crab. In some cases, you may not want to mix certain types of crabs or fish within the same saltwater aquarium. We will help you design an aquarium so there is no conflict with the sea creatures.
There are a couple of rules of thumb about compatibility. Generally, if a fish is much larger than another, it is more likely to eat the smaller one for dinner. If fish are the same size, but entirely different species, there is more of a chance they will fight. Invertebrates usually keep to themselves more than fish, which is why they are a great, easy addition to fish tanks.
A starfish is highly popular aquarium invertebrate and we offer a number of different varieties. We have Green Brittle Starfish, Red Brittle, Red Serpent, African Knob, and more. Like fish, there may be compatibility issues with different starfish, so we will gladly help you find the right combination of both fish and invertebrates.
We’d all like to go on six-month vacations to a tropical island. Unfortunately, most of us don’t have that opportunity. The next best thing might be to bring a bit of tropical paradise indoors to a tropical aquarium. Many people talk about how peaceful it is to watch the flickering flames of a campfire. The same goes for a tropical aquarium. It can be enormously peaceful to watch the fish and invertebrates go on with their daily lives within the aquarium. For these reasons, saltwater aquariums are popular in offices, restaurants, and homes.
