New to this site. I'm trying to understand what may have happened to a huge Black Serpent Star that I have had for many years? I have not seen it in months now. Generally during the night it would have an arm stretched across the reef from front to back. I could feed it a...
Hi all im new to saltwater tanks so heres the deal i got a serpent star and a sand sifting star yesterday i aclimated them. today the serpent looks pinkish andlimp. i thought for sure he was dead so i went to pick him up and he droped a leg. dont they only drop legs while still alive for protection?
Please help me identify this thing. I was cleaning my tank and removing some sand as per a discussion on a different forum and several of these sea creatures appeared on the rocks. I can only guess that they were a small hitchhiker from a previous purchase that has been living - and growing -...
So a friend moved out of the state and left his salt water tank for us to have. Originally he just had the coral, a snail and 3 crabs. Since we got it in September we have added a star fish, anemia, clown fish and a blue fish. Sorry new to salt water tanks and pretty much an idea.
We do water...
Okay so here's whats happening:
I have a brittle star fish that hitchhiked on one of my rocks. Long story short its standing up, next to another one half its size. I read this could be spawning behavior and I just wanted anyone's opinion.
Here's a picture (sorry for poor image...

I just bought an established fish tank with live rock, sand and some marine life in it. When I moved it to my house I did not notice anything that might look dangerous and the guy I bought it from had it for almost one year with no trouble at all.<O:p</O:p
One morning I noticed...
I am new to saltwater and I feel like a fish out of water!! I have a 30 gallon tank I recently (last week) got new live rock from a local place. I think I got a few hitchhikers with it!! First are the bristle worms I looked into those and I am undecided what to do with them (any opinions)...
Hey everyone, I just got this new piece of coral from my LFS and I can see a bunch of these little legs on it everywhere. It doesn't look like a worm to me... more like a starfish tentacle but I haven't seen the body, just the legs. There are like 4 or 5 in diff places. Its hard to see but its...
OK, so I am wanting to get a sea star but I don't want one that is going to get HUGE:rotflmao:
So here are my questions:
*what is the smallest starfish kept in captivity?
*How big does it get?
*what size tank does it need?
*does it get along with other creatures?
Any extra tips would be VERY...
I was just wondering if anyone could tell me, My marble sea star has pinkish red stringing stuff comming out of his center. I am hoping he will be okay as he has just arrived. If anyone knows about this please help!
I have a sand sifting star fish that seems to have its legs starting to disinagrate and and just today 2 of its legs seem to have fallen off about halfway. I read a little about this happening when the star fish has first been put in but i have had this for about 5 months now.
Looked over to were I had my yellow jackets zoo to find him over them pulled him off to find just one baby yellow jacket left. I also found a small one few inches over and removed him also and most likely remove anymore when theres a chance. He is a little bigger than a penny.
