Tank Janitors Information
Reef Tank Safe Janitors
"Tank Janitors" are the critters (fish and invertebrates) that crawl and/or swim around the tank, cleaning up the crud (detritus, uneaten food, undesirable microalgae, etc.) that builds up in a saltwater aquarium, disrupting the biological balance and appearance.
