TO KEEP OR NOT TO KEEP? #1
Found this baby starfish on a new coral frag that arrived this morning, so picked him off and put him in isolation. Don't know what sort it is, or if it't gonna grow into a monster, any ideas on what it might be please?Original Image

I guess all you can do really is keep it in your tank and remove it when it becomes too big, unless of course you have a tank suitable for them

Re: TO KEEP OR NOT TO KEEP? #7
these are pests. given time they munch on all your corals. we have removed well over 100!!! we gained them off some rock we bought off a guy a couple of months ago. still battling with them, but under control.
