so the oyster will keep it company?
More like provide some nutrients for them and your other corals, nutrients can be beneficial bacteria, little bit of their pseudo feces will be beneficial for the tank and they remove organic material and help keep the water clean

know anywhere to get them?
Just remember Pacific oysters, Google because it has different names besides Pacific oysters. And your supermarket and over here we have Asian markets and those are two sources I say keep an eye because if you buy one or two only they may not make it, they may be stressed or for whatever reason, so you keep buying till you get some hardy ones they're only like a dollar or $1.50 each. Little is better as to quantities in tank.

Very interesting. I will try the local Ranch99 market. Is there a reason you keep them in the bag and not loose in the sump or display?

Hey, I just came to a realization, I had a mussel in my tank for 4 months and had no algae issues but it died unfortunately from a tank crash. As soon as it died all my algae issues have become apparent. Maybe this oyster/mussel thing actually works?

Why would you need to keep an eye on them?
They may spawn or die. I wish mine spawn more often. They feed the corals. Sometimes they may spawn when acclimating. Also your tank temp need to stable. Increase and decrease in temperature fluctuations induce spawning.
