Those Little White Bugs in Your Aquarium
Your About Guides profile those little white bugs you see swimming or crawling around your aquarium. Learn about copepod and amphipod facts, what marine species will eat them, how to add them to a saltwater aquarium as a food source, as well as control or remove them if they are taking over becoming pests.

Guides Invertebrate Profiles Index
Here is an index to all of the Saltwater Invertebrate Family and Species Profiles your Guides have compiled that contain photos with identification, characteristic, diet, feeding and other information to learn about their captive care.
Reef Safe Invertebrates

Invertebrates Image Portfolios
From Reef Images, with all the pictures taken naturally in the wild, here is quite an extensive collection of Invertebrate images that can be viewed by Portfolios with related Families grouped together as a whole, or by individual Species categories. Clicking on the images will display an enlarged view with scientific/common name, location, and some other general information.
Marine Invertebrates of Hawai'i
