i dunno about awesome there really isnt that much done. some times i feel i have done alot but there is still so much more to do before anything is added. its a bit over whelming at times. i am enjoying it thou. but i still have alot of equipment to get before anything live is introduced.

Harmy you can get the Polyps to grow on the glass. The Ricordea idea sounds sweet too though.

Reason being.. is because that sea star is a crinoid. Crinoids are just about the most difficult inverts to keep in saltwater aquaria. You won't find too many aquariums around that will house them.. and usually if you do find one.. it will be a species only tank since they are extremely delicate. Someone on this site made a thread about a Sea Lily and that's a crinoid. You can see it in that thread..

But yeah.. crinoids are better left alone in the ocean.. unless you know EXACTLY what you are doing and you have the time to devote to their needs.
