Beneficial Fish

Are there any fish that benifit the coral other than just looking cool in the tank with coral?

Omnivores that help control algea are benificial.Fish that sand sift are benificial.Any fish used for a reef tank only benifit from being compatible to algea control to soem visual effect.

usually tangs within the zebrasomas family, like yellows, purples, sailfin, so forth... they usually help with a lot of algea control... many of the reef safe wrasse will help a lot with eating parasites and unwanted worms...
