Most of the cleaning can be done yourself. For example, blowing detritus off of live rock before a water change, algae scraping, sifting your sand once a week.
I do love my inverts, but I do realize when the time comes for a larger reef or predatory fowlr
they're probably gonna have to go. Also, they're a always algae eating fish, sand sifters, etc.
