Is it worth having a separated tank for breeding inverts?

I have trochus, astraea, cerith, conch, and nassarius snails. Also some scarlet hermits (if they can breed in captivity?). I want to breed these inverts so is it worth it to have another tank just for this? My tank has lots of fish especially wrasses if that's a factor.

I have been wondering what methods and species of inverts are best for breading sustainably as well. I have a sump with a refugium, my display doesn't have anything directly predatory like a wrass, but even tangs are omnivores, so I'm just not sure what larvae will be able to survive in the display, or if there is extra care and feeding that is needed after anything is hatched. Sorry for this non answer. Lol
