I've been wondering, what snails / crabs (if any) reproduce in a Reef Aquarium? Looking into det kits and such, and would kind of like to avoid purchasing new cleaners ever few months ( 130g tank not set up yet, researching atm, will be going up in a few weeks )

All will reproduce quite readily, unfortunately though most will not survive. More commonly snails are spawn scatterers and/or have a planktonic stage. It makes successful young an extremely low success rate albeit not impossible.

The best snail species to look for are ones that do not have a planktonic stage. Crustaceans all have a planktonic stage so not much luck there I'm afraid.
