Re: TO KEEP OR NOT TO KEEP? #13
easy now peeps... dont go on a search and destroy mission just yet, i just read that article about them being predators to small polyped stony corals (SPS)... it's quite likely that there is more than one species of these small stars, and these little guys are not all as bad as they might seem! and are probably scavengers not predators... they usually eat dead stuff and algae..
