How would one get micro brittle stars out of a Euphyllia skeleton? A guy gave them to me in in the skeleton and told be that they would move into the live rock, it's been 6 days and they are still in the skeleton.

If I had to venture a guess, it’s that they’re eating detritus from the skeleton and not stuck. 

 

Maybe dip the skeleton in RO water?

Wouldn't that kill them?

Yes. Just leave it in there and let them move out when they are ready.
