Just got my first order from Reef Cleaners .com

I am more than impressed. WOW!! I even got 2 lil cute bonus shells. Imagine if a hermit ever moves into one of these guys.

don’t buy your CUC anywhere else. The best $65 I have spent yet in this hobby. I feel like this dude is THE MAN and needs more business.

for the price, he cant be beat. I will caveat that you should upgrade to the overnight shipping to minimize any issues. I went for 2 day priority last time and all of the astrea snails came doa. Everything else was alive and great, so I didnt bother reaching out for a replacement/refund.

I ordered various CUC from them about 3 months ago. Had no idea their nassarius was so tiny I guess that's why they were cheap, my fish end up eating them sadly. Only issue I had was their shipping, some CUC bags came with no water, just a soaked paper towel and the box was half wet which I think came from those bags. I emailed them and they told me it's suppose to be like that. Not a really good experience, just okay imo.

I will definitely be buying from them again. Great communication, good selection, easy as pie acclimation process. The livestock is intertidal so doesn't need drip acclimation.

Nassarius are small snails. Look for Tongan nassarius if you want bigger ones.

That is how they are shipped.

The wet box must have come from something else.

Based on available post trending searchable items, to what degree does + ~56 mixed wet clean up crew animals being added all at once to a display present as a disease risk for fish?

they are wet, hard-shelled items in a large group all skipping fallow…

it’s been listed as a vector in the disease forum and in articles like ‘biosecurity’ by Jay where vectoring among disease pools is considered.


do they offer fallow prepped versions of these clean up crews

Not fully fallow, I asked and his systems are fish fallow and usually the animals are in there for around 2 weeks. Better than nothing and certainly better than most fish stores. It is a possible disease vector but honestly I've looked hard and not found and compelling cases that showed a clear contamination via reefcleaners. I would QT new snails and hermits for 4 weeks at least.

Just came here to say I just got a shipment from Reef Cleaners and everything went well. I was worried about shipping (usps, hot weather, etc.) but everything came alive and active.

Ordered a bunch of dwarf ceriths, 5 green porcelain crabs, an emerald crab, a Pom Pom crab, and a few other odds and ends.

Very happy with this order.

I've ordered several times from John. The one bad experience I had was a combination of USPS dropping the ball and some weather (freak snow). John refunded me the entire order even though only half was DOA. I then reordered overnight via UPS and everything arrived perfectly. I just received another order from him (sexy shrimp, Randall's pistol) overnight via UPS and it was also perfect. The key (for me) seems to be UPS overnight shipping. John does everything exceptionally well on his end.
