    Hi

    Found this little guy is the bottom of a container after dipping a new coral. Can I just add it to my tank or could it be problematic?

    Sorry for poor quality pic - it is really tiny (fish food?)

    Hi Louise
    It looks like the regular brittle stars that we have in our tanks - good stuff.
    In general, they are not fish food, but part of the CUC

    Will be eaten if they are small enough and found by fish, usually hide in crevices of rock work, and agree with @Gesiggie, great CUC.
