  1. could you put any species of starfish in a 5 gallon ? maybe like two or even just one by itself in a 5 gallon ? im really interested in any invertebrates .
  2. I got some live rock and live sand and one of them had this little star fish. Sorry for the bad pictures it blends in with the sand pretty well but I need to know what kind it is.
  3. Interested to see how people feel about the brittle stars in their tanks. Do you have large ones? Small ones? Love or hate them? I am fascinated to watch their little arms sticking out everywhere and my girlfriend names them all after philosophers.
  4. So i have a sand-sifting sea star and im currently acclimating him with an anemone who is perched on a rock. Spud, the sea star in question, no matter how many times i move him away, keeps going to my anemone. Is he trying to eat him? We spot feed him a couple times a week...should i be worried?
  5. Hello, I was strolling the shore of Lake Michigan when I stumbled onto this species. I know starfish are not native to Lake Michigan so I am mainly curious on the species of this creature and how it might possibly came here. Thanks a lot! p.s. the square represents a square inch.

    Micro Brittle Love Shack

    There's something in the air ... or water. This morning noticed my 7 year old clown pair was spawning behind the rocks. Later saw an astrea releasing gametes. This afternoon just after my weekly water change and cleaning saw 7 micro brittle stars climbing out of the rocks. They proceeded to have an orgy. The more ambitious one even clinbed on top of an astrea before having his fun. The two apparent males soon slunk back into the rock, while the apparent females reclined about the rocks, evidently wishing for cigarettes. Hopefully there will be a new batch of micro brittles soon - I owe @Lula_Mae some (found out a few weeks later some of these were supposed to be sent to her!). They are larger than the ones I had before- bodies about the diameter of a pencil eraser, legs each about 1 1/2 in long.
  7. I will update this post with more information when I get time as I am in a bit of a rush right now. I have had my starfish for over 2 weeks now and 2 days abo I noticed one of his legs got chopped off sure enough I found his leg af the bottom of my tank. Now 2 days later I notice another leg laying on the sand. Sure enough another leg got cut off. Both severed sections are about 1 inch. I do have a small Jabeo two-4 that runs at 40% power during the day and 20% power at night. Is it possible that he is getting his legs cut off by the wave maker ? Wave maker is about 8 inches of the sandbed. Could it be the anything else? 20 long 4 bulb aquatic life t5- 4 different spectrum bulbs RW-4 wake maker 2 Topfin 20 gallon rated HOB filters( one filled with chemipure elite, The other filter floss) 1-100w 1-200 w heaters 8 Hermit crabs ( red and blue leg) 2 trochus snails, 2 nessarius snails 2 marg snails 1 osc clown( juvenile) 1 blue spotted yellow watchman goby 1 scooter Blenny 1 cleaner shrimp 1 rose pink sea urchin 1 starfish( never could find out the kind although it’s long and skinny with light and dark brown bands. 1 horseshoe crab A bunch of Xenia, GSP and zoa frags tempature 78-80f salinty 1.24-1.26 ( tank swings every day due to daily top offs needed. I think 20 gallons paired with lots of surface agitation is the cause) Nitrates 5ppm or less phosphates .25 ppm or less calcium 400 DKH- 13 P.S the jar is culturing copapods. If anyone has questions I would love to answer. I have had crazy success with this, my tank is now overloaded with copapods and I’m thinking about trading the scooter Benny for a GMG due to the high population. All I did was float the jar with some copapods and add about 20 ml of phyto plankton every 5 days for food. Update, woke up today to find his fourth leg on the sandbed next to him on the opposite side of the wavemaker. Im lost for ideas at this point,
  8. My Marble Starfish is normally pretty boring since he doesn't move much. Today, I caught him moving a little bit so I made a time-lapse video.
