Invertebrate aquarium

Alright so I am setting up a 29 gallon aquarium that will have on side mostly invertebrates with maybe a fish or two.

I am going to have one side with love rock and the other an open sand bed.

So far I think I am going to get a horseshoe crab, and a short spine urchin. Any other ideas on cool stuff I could get?

Don't put a horseshoe crab in there. It will die/get way to big if it lives. They need huge tanks with huge sandbeds full of life.
