    Hi Posting on behalf of a friend..

    A friend of mine bought a 2nd hand boyu TL550. The tank has been running for 8 months.

    His concern is that there are couple of tiny bristle stars floating around.

    Is this anything to worry about ?

    The tiny bristle stars are fantastic detrivores and a great addition to any tank as a CUC bud

    The tiny brittle stars are good to have. If they are actually "floating" there may be a problem. I assume you mean moving about the tank?
