It's good they are eating the hair algae. My hermits never bother the brittle stars. Just the opposite, I "suspect" one of my larger ones may have killed a couple small hermits. Not sure though.

The guy at AC said they wouldn't eat the diatoms

He also told me to keep the sand stirred up

Personally I don't stir my sand up, I've read it releases nitrates into the water.

I'm curious to know.

DO NOT STIR YOUR SAND BED.


Leave it alone. Let "nature" do its thing. Stirring up your sand bed is asking for trouble. I haven't touched my bed in over a year.

Yeah I'm not going too. The hermits are moving it so that's working. I moved the snail from three rim. He was just doing circles around the tank lol. I put him on a rock seems happy now that there is something to eat.
