Interestingly, the red thorny isn't nocturnal from what i'm reading. So if it goes to sleep maybe thats my guy? He's out and about right now on my powerhead no less.....

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

If you want to know right now...just place him right next to some zoanthids or whatever you have and if he starts moving on top of it, it'd be clear what he's trying to do :d

I think it's the one here, not reef safe http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...748&siteid=23&

What a cool starfish! I'd leave him and keep an eye on him, if he is constantly on your corals then I'd start worrying haha.

To be honest, when I put him in I dropped him on a duncan coral. lol He just moved right off him and moved across all my zooa's to get to where he is now.

I'm thinking I'm safe on this one. Thanks for the vote of confidence Kelsey.

he is an AWESOME starfish. He is so red and his body underneath the tentacles thingees is red too! I love bright colors.

No problem! What was the scientific name of this guy? I'm definitely going to see if I can order one!

Edit* I found it! Echinaster echinophorus

carey's star looks more liek it has throns like a rose bush does, not bit pointed bumps like the knob star. why do you guys scare her so much, if it starts to become a pain in her rear, the LFS salesman said he'd take it back but lets not jump to a conculsion without being 100% sure that it will kill her inverts and corals
