    Hi

    I'm fairly new in the hobby, but looks like a brittle starfish. I bought one about 4 months ago.

    Detritus: organic matter produced by the decomposition of organisms or organic waste.
    SO brittle stars will clean up any uneaten food, dead micro-organisms, etc...

    Only a pleasure:)

    I got a frag on a small piece of rock recently from a fellow MASA member, and close to 20 brittles were hiding in it :) They are wonderful to have and really clean up nicely, as the are capable of getting into those hard to reach places
