I don't think there is any specific reason for this.. maybe he is just climbing up the glass !! Some say that it is cos they are looking for food, I think you probably just disturbed him and he is making a get away !

If he keeps doing it =then he is either hungry or you don't have enough hiding places for him and he has decided to move on.

You shouldn't see your brittlestar much, they are reef grazer and if your reef is big enough he will disappear for months on end.

I agree, I put 10 into my tank, never saw them again.

Mine did that in the beginning once or twice, until they settled and I never saw them during the day again.

Hi Jason - how's your tank doing now? Water still cloudy? You might have had a bacteria bloom, or perhaps a "snowstorm" (calcium phosphate coming out of the water).....

How does your parameters test?
