Due to the diversity of the invertebrate species, these groups are further aggregated into the following three categories: 1) invertebrate animals (including crustaceans, mollusks, starfish, anemones, sea cucumbers, sponges, nudibranches, bryozoa, etc.), 2) plants (including those of the Caulerpaceae, Halimedaceae, and Corallinaceae families), and 3) live rock and live sand.
