Harlequin shrimp

I imagine the rise and fall in asterina population is due to availability of food. With a "predator" in the tank, it could be like the African savannah :lol:

GSP reeds :D

Has anyone ever seen these shrimp eating stars such as brittles or astrerinas? I was under the impression they would only accept linkia sp. and once in a while CCs. Personally I would just get some sexy shrimp. Har's are pretty but ususally dont last long. They actually feed on the tube feet of the stars, and rarely take any other food.

Mine always took CC's. Unless you have experience with them you can't go on what you've read.

What about flow?I will have high flow in my tank (probably around 1200 to 1800gph)

They DO NOT do well with high flow unless you have a lot of rockwork for them to hold on to.

Okay,that COULD be a problem.But I will have a bit of rock in there.Like 55lbs.

What if the asterina stars are on the glass?

 

I will also have a SCWD current system hooked up to the plumbing.

They should do fine.

 

make sure you put them near the biggest stack of rock when you put them in your tank.
