Will a Black Brittle Star eat Feather Dusters?

Hey all,

I placed an order with saltwaterfish.com yesterday for a new cleanup crew. I included a black brittle star in the order. I just read in a book of mine that brittle stars may prey on Feather dusters. Has anyone sucessfully kept feather dusters and stars together? Should I be concerned?

Thanks

John

I have grey/pinkish and had a green. No problem with the dusters. Don't know about the black. Trying to figure out how a star can get to a duster.

Well, speaking from experience, it's quite easy to remove the worm from the tube heheh
(oops! - I shucked one when trying to move it - they recover quickly and rebuild within a day tho).
I could see a brittle just eating through the tube (if they were so inclined), as the tubes really arn't all that durable.
