He looks like he found a good spot! If that thing sat there much longer, I was going to buy it!

Edit: I'm glad it went to a good home

They take a very established tank right? Guess that rules me out for a while. They are gorgeous though.

I love them! I've been trying to create the right environment for one before I get one.

Thanks for sharing that image!

I had a filter feeder Brittle Star for about 5 years before.......

a drop or 2 of live phyto daily (targeted), and then same conditions for SPS & Leopards/Tamarin.....

frequent change carbon/gfo dose vodka (add bacteria, possible food source).

PE Mysis with Selcon (not sure Selcon by itself could be a source...but it actually may).

and I will continue research...and continue look for food stuff for filter feeders......

Let me know how it goes! Always wanted to keep one, but Every feather star I've seen slowly dies over the next few weeks to months.
