    Hi y'all - I have probably hundreds of micro green brittle starfish in my live rock - I tried to coax some out this morning to no avail, but was able to catch a dozen that were under small rocks to give to a friend. This may sound stupid, but how do I know if what I have are actually just...

    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...

    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)!

    Several weeks ago, my serpent starfish lost an arm and I decided it was just 'one of those things'. Well, this morning, I decided to take a picture of it because he's looking pretty bad. Is this a sign that he's dying? My water parameters are : ca - 450ppm alk - 11 dkh salinity - 1.026 ph - 8.3...

    I came home tonight and found an arm from my serpent starfish at the bottom of the tank. I also have a green brittle starfish in the tank. What would cause it to come off? Can they get them caught between the rock and then pull them off themselves? The green brittle comes out as soon as the...

    Well my tank is a sad looking thing compared to most of your tanks, and definitely not as "mature", but I thought I'd bite the bullet and get some pictures posted while I had a few minutes. I started out in Jan/06 with a 29g and moved to the 55g late Mar/06 when Reefneck moved from the 55g to...

    So I picked up a couple hermit crabs yesterday, one really really small, and one apparently very large, and he seems to be the terror of my tank. This tank contains a dwarf lion fish, a green bristle star, various snails, this hermit crab and a chocolate starfish (no plans for coral in this...

    you may recall, a while back i added that evil furry red hermit crab with an anenome on his back. he turned out to be a carnivore and i caught him munching on the tips of my green brittle starfish's legs. he chewed off about 1/2" from 4 of the 5 legs. the hermit was subsequently banished back...

    hey- so are things that good or are they that bad? i'm not sure and was hoping that those with more experience could help me out. my protein skimmer produces a lot of foam, but very little gunk. this can mean one of two things: either the skimmer sucks, or my water is pretty good...
