This elusive starfish is a wonderful addition to any tank. During the day they spend most of their time under the sand or hidden amongst the rocks but at night they come out to feed on detritus, small organisms, and left-over food.
Brittle stars require plenty of live rock and a sandy bottom to stay happy and healthy. They can not tolerate copper-based medications, and sudden changes in oxygen levels, salinity, and pH of the water.
