For my serpent star. I have decided that asterinas eating my pretty blue zoas is simply not going to do, so I need a harlequin shrimp. But I don't want to sacrifice my serpent star, and I don't have a sump to put him in yet. Anyone here willing to keep him for a few months til I a)get rid of the asterinas and the shrimp, or b)get my sump together so I can throw him in there?

He's not the scary green kind. He's the gray kind. I feed him krill by hand and he spends the rest of his days down in the rocks.

Tagging along as I need a harlequin shrimp too! Asterina are making my tank look bleached white from eating all the coraline.

how big is he and these are reef safe right? i have a zillion (roughly) micro-serpents in both my tanks and could keep him, after words, i'd trade you for the shrimp so i can get rid of my asterina problem too

He's not huge, I would guess an 8-10" legspan if he stretched. Reef safe and never harmed a thing in my tank. (Which is why I don't want to sentence him to a horrible death by dismemberment.) He will take krill right from my fingers.
