Brittlestar mating season?

When the lights came on in my aquarium i noticed a whole bunch of small white brittlestars (looked just like um, im pretty sure) there must have been 20 of em scatterd. I havnt have a brittle star in the tank ever. Must have been 2 hitchhikers and mated or something. My LFS said they shouldnt be a nusience and they clean the sand and algea. I have a rose anemone and a GS maroon clownfish in the tank. Some of the brittlestars only had 1 leg tho, so i thought they were pretty young. They can get into every nook and cranny in my LR heh.

They most likely came in on the LR. I must have between 200-300 tiny brittles in my large reef. Nothing to worry about. They are good glass cleaners.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
