Bristle Star or Bristle Worm? #1
i was just looking in my tank and i spotted this creature. i dunno if its a baby star (as i have a big one in the tank) or a worm. it came right out of the crevis of the rock and seemed to have 6 legs and a body. iv had the big star about 10month and this is the first sign of a baby ive seen. sorry about the pic quality, its off my phone. iv also seen two other possible babies, but iv only ever seen thier legs, so they could be bristle worms.
thanx in advance.

it is some kind of brittle star, definitely not a bristle worm.

i thought it was, but i couldnt understand why iv just started getting them, as iv had the large one for over 10 month now.
thanx
