Thanks Bawel. Frankie, you could never ship them in the winter time esp. to Chicago. They would never survive the cold.

True. The weather is very bad so I probably would not chance it.

Hey tank, I have an load of asterinas and im only a few hours away in Springfield. Priority mail would probably only take a day, two max. When it gets warmer I'll send you some. Or when baseball season starts I'll be in Chicago every month or so, maybe we can do some swappin. You may see them show up in your tank by then though. I only saw a few in my tank for months then all of a sudden I seemed to have a ton!

Description: Small hitchhiker starfish. Generally an algae and detritus grazer, but care should be taken if there are sps corals in the tank. Some may eat the flesh of sps corals. The can reproduce rapidly in the home aquaria and reproduce by dropping a limb. For this reason, often times they are almost never symmetrical and often missing limbs.

Figures, I just found my first one on the glass this morning... And of course it has two limbs missing.

Mel, have you noticed any issues with them munching on any corals?

No I never seen them do that. I`ve had them for over ten yrs now. There are several types of asternia stars. But from what I understand there is only one of them that will mess with corals. Also from what I hear that those type are very rare. Supposedly the bad ones are brown where mine are white as are all the ones I`ve seen.
