Which animals will propogate in a reef?

Hi, I'm just wondering what animals will propogate (reproduce) in an established reef system.

Are there any snails, fish, or inverts that will easily reproduce? Obviously corals can but what active criters in a reef system will?

Yeah, me two on the cleaner shrimp experience. I'm looking at one of'm and noticing how big and colorful the belly was. 2 hrs later - I just happened to be near my tank again, and witnessed a snow storm. Kinda freaked me out for a minute until I noticed the snow flakes had legs. 8O

Buffet!!!! :P

I think turbo snails do also.

Yeah, and they might be the only ones where the babies live and grow.

Stomatella varia (small sluglike snails) will in enormous proportions. The best snail out there IMHO. Most other critters other than those above generally breed only to add to the food chain.
