Harlequin shrimp feed exclusively on chocolate chip stars. They won't go after a brittle unless really hungry. When I see her I feed her right away. The brittle was a hitchhiker anyway lol.

Creates more aeration and flow...usually you can just buy a separate powerhead like a koralia evolution, or if you want to go expensive, but awesome, a vortech pump by ecotech.

By adding flow you will create current like in the ocean.

Oh I just assumed that they ate any type of starfish. You feed her when you see her, so you have starfish on hand? Frozen starfish? I don't know, sounds really interesting. Sorry to interrupt the thread.

No problem, I have chocolate stars in the back chamber of my BC29, I always keep 1-2 in there.
