    Hi everyone,

    I noticed this little guy in my tank shortly after I added a new piece of rock to my system with some corals on it.

    Is it
    Asterina sp. Starfish?

    If so should I eradicate?

    asterina.

    My system got loads of them. Without any issues. Only problem I had was that they ate up my cheato ball. OK, it is a softy dominated system.

    why, bristle stars should not bother harlequin shrimps. I had them both in the same tank before.

    Unless it is that big green bristle star.
