    Hi everyone. Hoping someone can help me.

    I have a huge problem with asterina star fish taking over my tank. They have completely devoured all my coraline and are starting to move onto my coral and make the polyps close. I have tried removing them with a tweazer but I just can win. There are thousands.

    If anyone has a harlequin shrimp to lend me I would be extremely grateful. Even willing to pay rent.

    I have had one on order from jungle aquatics for well over 4 months now but one never seems to arrive.

    Please help. I am at my wits end with these damn starfish.

    Hey buddy, in the meantime put a pin at the end of long susati stick and harpoon the buggers...works better than a tweezer.

    good luck
