    Starfish, baby

    I think I might have found a baby starfish is my reef tank. It was on one of my rocks. It had 5 to 6 arms. I think six, but I could be wrong. It was white with black specks throughout its body. Not a driod, I know what those look like. Had them all over my frag tank.

    I tried to get a picture, but you can't even see it. The only other starfish I have in the tank, is a black brittle star fish.

    And I am not for sure when this little guy would have come from. The only things I have recently added, was 2 peppermint shrimp, 6 Turbo snails, 1 lawnmower blenny, and a sebae anemone.

    Its more than likely a Asterina star. Here is a link

    Asterina Starfish - Invertebrate Information Database - Nano-Reef.com
    Ray or Raymond
    There is no elevator to success in marine tanks. You have to take the stairs.
