Some people keep one or two dstarfish in a fuge or separate tank and just cut the arms off them to feed every week. One arm from the first then again with the next since starfish naturally regrow the legs

I was doing that in the beginning but you would have to keep several starfish in order to cycle them for the legs. The legs dont grow back very fast.

I found out that my red slime issue is primarily due to the timer is not working. The light have veen on for 24/7 for over a week now. So i am shutting off the light for a couple of days to see if the red slime goes away on its own.

I am trying the chemiclean to get rid of the red slime algae. I have read some really good reviews on it so thought i would give it a try.

I did a 10% water change and added another dose of the Chemiclean. I will check on it on Monday and do another water change. Hopefully the red slime will be all gone.

Just ran across this. Peroxide to kill cyano. Still in the works.

I would read up on it as much as possible and start of with a very low dose if you want to go that route. I know peroxide is really good for dipping plugs to remove algae, I've just never dosed it in my main tank. Best of luck!
