    Serpent star hitchhiker...

    My son discovered a starfish on the liverock this morning. It's only, maybe a 1/4 inch from the tip of one slender leg to the tip of anoher. When we turned on the lights he was heading to a darker location! Cool. We also discovered something else new on the LR (but I can't make it out), it looks like an insect, it's only 1/8 inch so hard to see any details. Hopefully all is good to have!

    Most of those tiny starfish are fine.

    Thanx for the info Gavos...it doesn't look like a SPS Eating Starfish (thank goodness). It has really long, spindley legs, sewing needle thin (no I don't sew). It likes to hide in the rock and stick it's legs out. If it's good, I hope it grows up.
