    Hi all,
    Just wanted to show you the serpent starfish as he has been hiding.
    He was only out a few minutes!

    WOW, I'm so jealous :)! I'm hoping to have some starfish sometime soon! How big (diameter from tip-tip) is that bad boy? Looks awesome Claire.

    *can you take a pic without the blue light or tell us his color.

    Hi 1971roadrunner he is about 10 inches in diameter but he only comes out at night and not every night. I was just lucky to get this picture! :)
    He is brown and tan stripped-cant recall the exact type of serpent but this guy is fast! Really fast. He was in and out in about 3 minutes after traversing the entire front of the tank.
    Thanks Lucy, my grandson thinks it is super cool!

    Yeah, I've seen them over the years and they're freaky cool and that's a larger one. Perfect size for a 120g and maybe he'll come out more when he's been around longer? How long have you had him?

    I went to my reef/SW club meeting at a big LFS here in town tonight and took a look at some of those Brittle Stars. The salesman there lifted a huge piece of LR in one of the tanks and there were like 20 of 'em under there - jeez. They really do hide! Maybe I'll get one for the 125g when ready but I'm happy with my Sea Apple (named after yet another character in a Beatles song) in the QT for now :).
