Typically only purchased as a 'hitchhiker', the Striped Baby Brittle Starfish is a nice surprise if found in your reef tank or refugium. They will not grow as large as you might hope. The center will get as big as an eraser head, and with tentacles between 2" to 3" (from tip to tip). These are good detrivores (detritus consumers), but will also capture solid foods when available. Look closely in your rockwork and you may see a few arms extended, or in your macro algae. Reef-safe
