mini brittle stars

  1. General Reef Discussion
    Almost sounds like a bad trip to the dr's office! Seriously, who keeps both? I used to do so... the scarlet hermits seemed to leave the snails alone... but, for the most part, I thought snails were just better all around to keep in a reef tank, (depending on type,) so I'm thinking before I...

    I am in the process of redoing my tank completly and was wondering if anyone ever tried this stuff..... Right now theres a company on "The Worlds Largest Bidding" place, out of California, selling live rock for $1.99 pound. I have checked his feedback and all looks good, just wondering if any...

    When curing LR, what about lights? Are they good, bad, indifferent? Seems like maybe a touch of light, to keep live stuff live, but not too much cuz of algae... Also, how important is it to use RO/DI water when in the curing stages... Heard of FW dipping to get out bristleworms... What do...

    I've decided to make some "open space" in my tank and consequently, I've a large "Y" shaped piece of LR for sale. The rock is Tongan and has a couple of plating montipora's growing on it (frags of these would come with the rock since some will be left after I remove the main colony). It has...

    I don't know how to tell everyone this but most of my tiny starfish are gone. We changed tanks this weekend and for some reason they're not there anymore. I have a few in some rocks but they used to be all in the sand. Literally you could scoop out a 1/2 cup of sand and there would be dozens...

    Sue me! I have DSB... actually a VDSB. (And D stand for deep, not dirty). So what I'm understanding from reading tons on here is this: A DSB is for newbs who will make mistakes because a DSB will absorb things and act as a "buffer" for bad things. ie, in the short term, a DSB is good because...

    I had a pad, from a HOB filter, sitting on the bottom of my sump. It broke free, and floated to the top. Was looking on it, and found dozens of small brittle stars. Body maybe 1/16", with an overall diameter of 1/2" or so. In the year my tank has been set up, I've never seen one in the...

    Just looking for a list of things that can be kept in nano tanks smaller than 5 gallons, and down to say- 1 or 2 gallons- without it being cruel. The one i'm in the middle of building won't be more than 2 gallons- being a main tank thats just under a gallon and a sump that looks even smaller...

    Okay, I know this is old hat to most of you, but I'm so excited about all the life popping up in the tank. I have pods of some sort skating around the rock, and also skating just under the surface of the water when I feed and have the pumps off. No idea what kind, but very lively little...

    Barebottom tank questions Hi all, I've got three questions; 1. Is there any reason to have hermits in a barebottom tank? 2. the highest acro in my tank gets exposed to air during water changes (the one just right of center in the pic). I haven't seen any signs of damage from this, but...

    We ordered a flora kit and a fauna kit from Inland. I'm very impressed. There were lots of goodies in each kit. The flora kit contained about 5 different algae. Horge..need your help with the ID :) sorry the pics aren't the best..too much sunlight/indirect light. Dictoya? Gracillaria ...

    Somehow people have gotten the idea that DSB's will process wastes indefinitely. That they miraculously just keep going and going and going like the energizer bunny. Not true. Think of them like a septic tank, you can add all the RidEx and critters you want but you're still going to end up with...

    If i want to add more live sand, do i need to worry about burying the bases of my LR? And if i do add LS, can i add it on top of my current blended CC, Araganite, Pukashell substrate? Or will i be better off replacing the existing substrate entirely? boy, the hermits are not gonna like it if i...

    Owner of LFS tells me sandsifting stars are fine for DSB. I've read that they are harmful. He tells me not to believe everything I read. I tell him I read it online. He tells me not to believe everything I read online. Do I trust his word or stop patronizing his establishment?

    The following picture is of a few critters that have been living in our refugium, and tank. We have, 2 diffrent types of starfish growing, and tons of baby turbo snails. I know the one is a brittle star, but I am not sure what the other is. We have a large brittle star, in the top reef tank...
