hey warr i think you'll dig this.

I had some trouble feeding my CBB, i wanted to get a closed mussel and drill a small hole in it, but i didn't get a closed museel so i git a oyster(closed).

i made a hole, and placed it in my tank.
after a few seconds my marbel starfish opened the shell, it made a moerse "klap" noise so i went and have a look and so that he opend the shell.

cool guys.

The funny thing were ,that when the marbel star opened the oyster, the tomato clown ripped the meat out and fed it to the nennie.
That poor star thought he scored big time.

Think about this, how "reefsafe" is this starfish with any type of clam?

nutrients :p I normally get a cyano outbreak when I feed too much frozen food, loose a fish or a coral. I should really setup a rescue tank and not use the main display tank as a hospital/rescue tank.
