They eat phyto. I took a few pics after acclimation just now. I put him high up in the back of the tank, let him get happy, and then fed him phyto. His outreach is amazing!

Lol. Thanks! The research on the basket star was hard to find. But I think I'm prepared for him!

Alright.... So I am just now subscribing! I'm new to the saltwater side of the hobby and as a result I have been reading tons of builds (big and small!!!) and now I've found yours!!!!

Given that I've had to go back to the start of the build I missed out on a lot of awesome photos. Would you mind adding a few FTS so we can see where you are at now? I would really appreciate it.

And from what I've seen of the tank... it is smashing!

The star likes to hide during the day. Mostly a night owl. The scallops are non-photosynthetic and just eat phyto as well
