thanks

the one with the black and gray is probably a mini brittlestar. I have a few that come out (they live in my green star polyps) during feeding. They are harmless. and OMG you have the same name as me LOL

that would be cool if it was a mini brittle star but it would be kind of weird (unless there are multiple stars) because they come out of 4 or 5 different places at one time a few on one side of the rock and a few on the other side but i guess its possible seeing as the rock is about 14" across. and maybe the rock is pretty hollow inside because it was only 7 lbs
