I didnt realize how aggressive these things are. Do you think that they are going to wipe out those mushrooms if I dont cut them off? then also I have a coral honeysuckle that is looking pretty woody and I am considering cutting it down drastically in a couple of weeks. Does this vine perform better with drastic pruning...if so, when is the best time to prune? Mine blooms primarily in the spring, with a few sporadic blooms throughout the summer
Generally the only red starfish that do well in a tank are Serpent. Others such as the barious Linkas have a mixed degree of successs for more than a few days in the tank. Others are preditory in nature and you will not be reef safe. There is still a considerable amount of debate among scientist as to what their husbandry needs really are. These are very sensitive and soft critters and best left to expert aquariust in a good case situation.
