Help! Angry Brittle Star and Trigger


In Memoriam
My 12" brittle star kept being picked on by my 2" picasso. He kept nipping at his arms. Well it looks like the trigger pushed him a little too far because when I walked back into the room this afternoon, the trigger is on the other side of the tank cowering. I don't knwo what happened but he is definately not going near that brittle star.

When the picasso gets bigger, will he be a danger to the spiny brittle star? He definately has eaten at least 5 of my hermits so far so he appears to be quite a bold feeder even for his small size.

As far as I've read (I was surprised with a trigger yesterday) Triggers will eat any invertebrate they can... So yeah I'd say your brittle star will be eaten eventually.
