Do you have any problems with different types of shrimp together?

Mainly I was thinking of the cleaners and pepermint?

I have peppermint and would like to get a few cleaners..

My poor little peppermint has spent the whole day tucked up behind one of my PH's, I think the gramma keeps hassling him

I'm gonna get a couple more shrimps (cleaner this time) at the end of the week, if it chases those as well then he'll be on his way back to the LFS!!

Cheers Shelton.

I've got a blue linkia. Very easy to keep. Also I have one black/brown brittle star and one serpent star. Not to mention dozens of the mini brittle stars and the white micro sea stars.

I do like the serpent best personality wise. He's very interactive. The blue linkia is extremely vivid and pretty and stays out in view nearly 100% of the time. The brittle star and the mini stars are all workhorses. They scavenge the bejesus out of the tank.

What do you feed your brittle stars?

Do do yo just let the forage for food?

My brittles eat whatever flake, pellets, or frozen Formula 1 or 2 they can get as I feed the fish. Nothing special. They're good foragers. I've seen them reach under rocks or in crevices for food. As you feed the fish, they will eat.

They eat anything and everything. They usually scavenge but sometimes I target feed them just for fun. The brittles and the serpent can really haul tentacles.

The linkia moves like paint drying in comparison. I have no idea what he eats to be perfectly honest. I think maybe he eats film algae. I've had him about 6 months and he's gotten bigger so he is eating something.
