    Hi,

    Looking for a Lawnmower blennie and some Brittle Stars to keep my sand clean.

    Thanks.

    Shan, you are correct, they are reef safe.

    The only drawback with these stars, is you will never see them, if your reef is of any significant size

    Hi abgg, the lawnmower blenny won't clean your sand, they only eat off the glass and rocks.

    Agree with Viper. Good sand sifters would be, Jawfish.

    I know most people don't like them cause they messy, but I love my boy, he keeps the substrate white.white. All I would suggest, is have loads of flow and then the substrate gets cleaned off the reef. :)
