no I guess a clean stable tank, they are probably the biggest part of my CUC since their arms are always exploring the small nooks of my lr to foliage for food, you usually only see a leg or 2 sticking out. I think there is also a big difference between starfish and Brittle star fish, would be curious if others have had them, they have been thru 3 tank upgrades.

Brittles/serpents are pretty resilient. Much easier than the fromia and linckia stars.
