    I have a bunch of little stars in my tank. I think they are some type of brittle. I just noticed them today the arms are ridged. I think they must have hitchiked or something. Are all these good or bad? There must be 1,000 of them. I can get pics later, but the biggest one is only a half inch.

    Hey guys. I'm pretty upset with myself right now. I KNEW the proper acclimation procedures (as learned online), but I decided to follow the LFS dude's instructions instead. Why? I don't know. Lack of sleep or sheer stupidity, take your pick. The day before we picked up five trochus snails...

    I lost a squamosa clam for no apparent reason :confused: I see several mini stars on the shell of my big clam and I am wondering if they are known predators or what?? I have been losing clams over the past several months and I thought it was from bristleworms when they were dieing in my seahorse...
