Love Scuds in Freshwater Systems. Do You Know of Salt Water Equivalents?


Recommended Posts

Thank you for stopping by. Hope you're great.


Just like the title says, wondering if you know of any scud-like creatures I could purchase for my small saltwater set-up?

I keep them in my freshwater systems as the smallest members of the clean-up crew (barring bacteria), wondering if they have some saltwater counterparts.


Appreciate any and all help. Best!

There are tons! Practically everything sold as a live food is some form of marine invertebrate that if they survive the onslaught of fish will clean up your marine tank. You also have macros such as sponges, shrimps, snails, and clams that do a great job of filtering or eating detritus and mulm. Marine tanks have no issues with finding clean up crews.
