I'm not sure, but they should be ok. I would highly suggest not getting a Sand sifting Star of Astropecten polycanthus, they will quickly starve in our tanks.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

Sounds good, thanks for the insight Roka. I've just heard about needed things to stir the sand, but I'm not going to be doing the DSB, since it dosen't seem particularly needed. Just something perhaps a watchman goby to dig into.

Nassarius snails are great sand stirrers.
