    Hi everyone

    I got a harlequin shrimp to clean up all of my asterina stars. He is steadily making his way through them.

    I really like this little guy and am going to try and keep him, even after the stars are all gone.

    Please let me know if you have any unwanted/dying starfish/asterinas that I could feed to the harlequin shrimp. I will collect it if it is not too far from me.

    Thank you!

    You can collect all the asterina starfish you can find in my system. Or you can leave your shrimp on "holiday" in my frag system for a week or 2.

    Thank you Riaan!

    For now, I still have a couple left - will definitely make contact in the near future. Thanks again.

    If you want to keep the Harleguin, you need to keep a breeding colony asterina starfish out of reach.
    Else pass it on to another reefer and get it back later. I had them previously and always sold them when they run out of food.
