Reef safe inverts:

Peppermint shrimp
Camel shrimp
skunk cleaner shrimp
sexy shrimp
anemone shrimp
anemone crabs
hermit crabs (most all types)
turbo snails
nassarius snails (incredibly valuable to a reef system)
most other snails

if anyone has any others just add them or any corrections post them :D
My reef is my expression... its a mixed bag of a bit of everthing with no clear theme all including mood swings, many odd quirks, nooks, crannies, and the best part: growth

Questions about saltwater? Wanna set up an amazing reef display and want to do it right? Just ask!

My Local big Al's has one for sale :)

Another note: if no soft coral, anemones or sponges are present, cowries are nice :)

well corals are a given since they generally are the "reef"

however, galaxia coral and others are not particularity safe since their sweeper tentacles sting other corals and inverts.
