Hows the star doing? I secretly want one in my tank since all I have is one clown, snails, 2 hermits, and the rest coral

Star seems to be doing well - he went and gave the clam a big hug, slapped a few small hermits and headed for a cave.

Also thought I'd add a gratuitous FTS

Got the first one in the tank - had a surprise with it...

Got a nice yellow sponge growing on the side. The guy at LFS and myself were careful to not expose to air.
Very cool!

Thanks - the star is cheap too - $8 at the LFS and it's bigger than my hand stretched out. Nice addition.

Looks great! All the fish are out and happy - clam looks good (at least yours sits right-side up).

I woke up this morning to one casualty, a nerite snail. Not even sure if he was in the shell to begin with, but I think so.

The conch is doing laps, the lobo is really opened up and looking great, and the snails are all over the glass. I initially watched last night as the star crept away, and this morning I saw (1) leg at like 7:30a... However, after I fed the tank, he stuck another arm out of the cave he's in and has been waving it since. I can see about 4" of one arm.
