So Mr. Redstir is in 75g now. He's been in about two hours and he's worked himself 1/2 on a rock and 1/2 on sand.

Would it be awful hard to move my tank 4 inches or so?

Moving a tank means you have to break it completely down or you risk breaking the tank

yes but lifting one corner at a time to put the sliders underneath is risky unless its pretty empty

Mr. Redstir

So, I think I'm gonna lose Mr. Redstir. I woke of this morning and 2 of his arms look like they are melting off and falling away in pieces at the tips. 2 more are a little white at the tips and 1 is fine.

I gotta go to work and in 5 min so only thing I can do is put him in a separate bowl and see how he is tonite.

What happened? He dying or regenerating or what?

Thanks all.

That's what mine started doing a short time after I got him It eventually spread to the more meatier sections of leg.

:-(

I'm so sorry your first star isn't working out. I've vowed to stay away from them until my tank is more established anyway. I may get my starfish fix from a chocloate chip star in my upcoming 90g.
