    Hi Lighty - it is a tiny little brittle star - you get them quite often in live rock. They usually only come out at night time.... :)

    Good luck.

    Yep, very good to have. They are detritivores and safe to keep in a reef as far as I know.

    It's refreshing to see a very clear pic in an ID request.

    I also thought it was not bad for a cell cam.
