No they do not make good beginner inverts and yes they do have some blue bursts. If your thinking arcs as in a Tesla coil.... Not quite.

They require some care in placement and waterflow. They also require Direct feeding with invert food. There really isn't a good beginner filter feeder. Some clams like the Derasa and Hippo Clams are more forgiving and hardier.

What type of setup do you currently have and do you have any experience with corals or inverts?
