So I have a question. I started my tank about a little over a year now. I seen a few brittlestars. Now it looks like I have a hundred of them. Should I be worried? Do they pose a threat? Has anyone else experienced this?

They are not a threat, they are great scavengers that eat detritus and uneaten food. One thing though, their population is controlled by how much food is available. So if you have ALOT, that may mean your over feeding.

Sell them on craigslist or trade them! If I lived near you I would come buy some myself. I can never get them at the LFS.
