OK so over the past few weeks I have noticed tiny baby starfish
in my tank. Like A LOT!!! I can count at least 10 at any given time but I'm sure there are more. I had a sand sifting starfish
in my tank, but last May I removed all the sand and went bare bottom. I placed the starfish in my 30gal upstairs. The biggest one I can find is about the size of this icon
. Maybe a little bigger. From what I can tell from the large one I'm about 85% sure they are sand sifting starfish. SOOOO my question is what will happen to these guys when they get bigger? I know they eat tiny critters from the sand but will they be able to survive in a bare bottom tank? Also where the hell did they all come from? Are they the offspring of my original star or could they have hitched a ride on a coral frag? Anybody familiar with the reproduction of sand sifting starfish?
