I got some live rock from KP Aquatics and had a snail and a brittle starfish hitchhike along. What does the brittle starfish eat? The tank is newly setup.
Watching the micros breed is insane.
These guys proliferate amongst the seaweeds in my systems.
MiniStars are small, incredibly industrious sand stirrers and cleaners that will help keep your live sand bed healthy, aerobic and free of decomposing detritus - the organic particles that rain down every day from the water column above. These reef-dwelling ophiuroids reproduce readily in closed systems because they have direct development (no planktonic stage). Reef safe, will not bulldoze. Size of individual specimens ranges from approx. 1/4 to 1/2 inch; includes adults, sub-adults and juveniles. MiniStars do not grow larger than approx. 1 inch in diameter.
