Recently picked up a red brittle star.

Looked on live aquaria for fun and noticed they listed them as semi aggressive. Anyone experience them being aggressive toward inverts or fish?

I do have a tiny baby mandarin , but I thought brittles just clean up and eat shrimp not fish hunters.

The green ones are definite hunters. I've kept a red one before and didn't see any aggression out of him, but i used to hand feed him whenever I fed the corals. I don't know if that made a difference or not.

Right on. I planned on spot feeding him just to be safe.
