    little star fish

    i bought some new live rock a few months ago and some little white star fish looking things came into my tank with it. they have been multiplying like crazy, so much so that some now vary any where from having 3 legs to 6. my question is are they harmful in any way to any of my corals. thanks

    As far as I've been told, they're reef safe.

    they stay really small, about 1mm diameter. they look more like the one in the first pic but much smaller, more like the size of the ones in the second pic.

    they're probably brittle star fish. I have a ton in my tank. They're fine. Here's a pic.
