no serpent stars for me, i do have a brittle star though... he always looks like a rock just fell on him. I never see more than just his legs sticking out from under a rock.

I have a black banded serpent star. Never see it much, but if your going to get a star for the puposes of "clean up", serpents are a better choice over green brittle stars.

Cheers
Steve

That post has misidentified the star. It would be a green brittle star not a serpent.

Serpent stars are not likley to prey on fish or other live animals.

Here is a britte star.

Here is a serpent.
