    A few weeks back, I noticed a sea star freaking out and fleeing at the front of my reef tank. I ran over to see what was up. There was my 18” Tiger-striped Fancy Serpent Sea Star split in half. The poor star was cut right across the disc, into a three-legged part and a two-legged part. The two...

    Im wondering if I should take a new toothbrush to the brown algae seen in the shot below, or let it be. Or get more snails to take care of it? How many snails = 1 fish? Or can't it be equated like that? The tank is only about 2 1/2 weeks old and cycled really quick. It's current inhabitants...
