Ok.. Basically.. after a long hiatus from SW
aquariums, due to moving all over the country and back.. .I am back in the hobby..
We still have our one, original purchase.. a Green BrittleStar. He's around 11" along his longest point when spread out..
Now.. let the questions start.
1: He's (the star) is in a 29g tank with nothing but sand and liverock. Is there any type of tankmate (fish pref) that he WONT try to eat?
2: is 29g big enough for the star? My tank is kinda lopsided.. meaning the liverock is mostly off to one side, taking about 2/3 of the footprint of the tank.. the last 1/3 is bare sand.. I just like the looks of it better than a tank stuffed full of liverock.
Also.. I am building a lighting hood using screw in CF
lights, rated at 15w, 5500K.. not sure of the CRI on them..
I have 2 running right now, will most likely finish up wiring the final 4 this evening / weekend for a grand total of 6. Would this be sufficient light for some soft corals, such as button polyps, etc?
By the way.. The Star has already eaten the hermit crab.. We actually witnessed it. The crab had just molted, and the star seemed to KNOW it was vulnerable.. It took less than 30 seconds before the star had him wrapped up.
Again, Many Thanks.
