I bought a cured live rock today from a "place that pets go" and after reading some post here about seeing "pest and hitchhikers" at night I decided to look at my tank and spotted a brittle starfish. I had my water tested today and it looks okay but my tank has only been running for a week. I'm...
I have had this brittle starfish for awhile and I was wondering if it could be identified. It is different from any other brittle stars I have kept, in that it has spines on the body as well as the legs.
:bigeek:I brought 2 turbos and 2 blue leg hermit crabs. Then a week later I brought the same combo again. Now this week I went to my tank when I woke up yesterday like many of us do, and there seems to be another little snail on my glass. I did a head count and I have still a total of 4 turbos...
I have had my green brittle starfish since Dec 2006. I bought him the size of a quarter, for my son for Christmas. He is now about 1 1/2 feet in length and I have to get rid of him because he likes to eat my fish. I hand feed him every night, either big krill or silversides. As long as I do...

Ive had a few fish/shrimp in my fishkeeping life which have been apparently healthy, eating, etc, and have mysteriously disappeared from the tank with no evidence or found body whatsoever. I am talking, out swimming around eating one night, and no body the next day (I don't keep very heavy...

I have in a new rock what I believe are a few ginormous brittle starfish. They look and act similar to the baby brittles but are much bigger. So far I have only seen legs filter feeding, but how will I know when it becomes a problem? (like BEFORE it eats one of my fish)!
