Question inverts

Do I need to put inverts is qt tank like fish? I have not added any more but I think I need to add a few snails and conchs. I have everything working good and water looks good, I do not want to have issues. I have a 93 gallon cube with a snowflake eel, koran angel, trigger, foxface, and a few damsels. I have a few fiddler crabs and a snail. Just want to add to the cleaning crew. I am setting up a 65 gallon tank to rehome the foxface and may add a few clown fish. I have not even filled the 65 with water yet, I am taking it very slow. I do not have the qt tank set up now, but I can set it up pretty quick. Does any one have any advise on the inverts?

That really depends who you ask. Ich can and will hitch a ride on inverts , coral, rock, macroalgae. The ich cannot use these as a host of course but hitching a ride in a tiny water drop on these item's is 100% possible . My motto is if it's wet qt it. . Now to the op I think your question was do you need to have inverts in a qt tank as a cuc. If that's so then no you don't . You don't really need them in any system actually. The qt should be bare bottom with no rock so it is easy to clean with a syphon .
