Well it does not say but I would think one in a 55 or maybe even a 75 gallon tank.

wow, thanks for the info. I think i might just nab one or two when my tank is up and running and is plenty mature. thanks again mike.

Wow you guys posted alot! I liked reading up on what you guys had to say! I was planning on getting just one brittle sea star. Just to switchup the diversity in the tank. Its a cool looking sea star and fun to watch and easy to take care of from what i've heard and read, so its probably going to be one of those. Thanks for all the experience and support in this thread guys!

Thanks guys. He hides days at a time and makes me worry. But he pops up and looks great. I also have some brittle stars I'm trying to locate.
