Just picked up a new shipment of coral this morning and found this guy in there, its about an inch from one end to the other and it looks like a brittle or serpent star

 

Should i chuck it out or throw it in the tank?

mini brittle man, good to have. keep it. you'll see its arms waving out of your LR in the future when you feed your tank. pretty sweet.

Not only will they wave their arms out at feeding time, you can actually spot feed them and they will grab up the food and munch away. It's fun to watch!

Nothing wrong with them. Good for the tank and fun to watch when they feed
