Didn't come in today, different supplier next Friday it should be here. I understand that bristles aren't 'true' starfish and possibly not part of their diet. Doug, have you witnessed a harlequin with a brittle star, or possibly owned a harlequin?

I've only known them to eat starfish that have tube feet so I doubt there will be a problem with your brittle star.

Hope this helps

Bongo shrimp, the harlequins much smaller relative eats small brittle and serpent stars. But no harlequins only eat true starfish.

Sounds good. Couldn't get the shrimp. I have one ordered, should be here Friday... on Halloween! Still not 100% on if I'm keeping the brittle or not, probably will. All i know is that thing is creepy to handle!

WOW thats a steep price! Got mine for $35. Could have got a 'pair' for $70. Not a breeding pair I don't think.

Man harlequins are so beautiful, if only they ate like cleaners. I've iften thought about setting up a pico just for a pair of them, good luck, here's hoping the asterinas start breeding like rabbits do you can keep it forever :p
