Notes: Brittle Starfish are great housekeepers for the reef aquarium and will eat fish feces, dead organisms, and uneaten food before these items can decay and pollute the aquarium. They are an important team member of any “Clean Up Crew”.
Although they are not a threat to corals or clams Brittle Stars may catch and eat small passive reef fishes, such as small gobies, at night. Otherwise they are great reef inhabitants.
Although it is a scavenger you may supplement its diet with scraps of meaty foods.
