They should be fine during the cycle. They were there from the start. It happens. You'll find hitchhikers. Not much you can do. Leave them be.

I'd stick with blue legged, red legged and the orange legged ones.

I was just wondering I was, looking them up on live aquaria.
I want a banded coral shrimp but I read they will kill other shrimp?
I was thinking a, pistol and a banded? And the hawkish gets 6 in long? I think I looked the right one up I'm not sure and the pistol shrimp is under snapping shrimp right?

I think I've figured out what all my hitchhikers are except for the little white things that stick up all over the place at night

I wish the brittle start would come out of his hole all the way his legs are at least 2" long

My pistol shrimp doesn't make a sound but yes other heat there. I'm not about the banded shrimp but I believe you have to be careful if your going to house other shrimp with him.

I don't think my hawkfish gets that big. 6" is pretty big for my 29 gallon tank lol.

That is about all you'll see of the brittle star. I've been watching mine for months now. They will stick their legs out at night and feeding time. I would also only stick with blue, red and Orange legged hermits.

I was just going by what live aquaria had a googled orange and white hawkfish and I came up with arc eye. I will stay away from banded shrimp then :-( I thought they were cool though. Found part of my lr is turning brown rust colored that normal. Also, find a real tiny tube stretching out grabbing then sucking back in?

Yea that's normal. It's called diatoms.

Google bristle worms (good) and fire worms (bad). They both are common hitch hikers.
