Yeah - Warren. It's absolutely COOL how starfish can contort their bodies. Have seen more strange positions that my starfish take up. Especially when they "come up for air" (very few occasions) - they go to the top of the glass all the way, until they reach the water surface, and then they seem to "spread" their legs sometimes out JUST below the surface of the water, with tiny suction cup tentacles "tasting" the air... perhaps they feeding - I don't know.

He aint on the glass, he's hanging off the live rock with only two arms. I know it's a bad pic but thats the best it gets with a nokia 5300
