Hi, this is my first time to use this website, (or any fish forum) and I'm hoping someone can help answer my question :)
My husband has a 50 gallon marine aquarium for the past 5 years or so. About three years ago he got a sand sifter starfish and it only recently died. Last year, we started getting babies all over the tank (about 1mm in diameter) and since the adult died, we are still getting them...hundreds of them!
Does anyone know if this species is a hermaphrodite, or is there another explanation for all the babies?
Thanks,
Andie.

That's exactly what they are! Thanks very much. I'll have a look out for a couple of harlequin shrimp to eradicate them.
Nice one :)
