I also "had" a black serpent star with the disc the size of a quarter or just a tad bigger. Thought he was pretty cool and being productive by stirring the sand bed. He "was" comical to see when feeding time arised. Like I said, thought he was pretty cool until I watched in horror when he grabbed the smaller of a pair of true percs that I had just purchased that cost me $100. I ran to get a net to save baby nemo, but he had it in his oral disc already & was slowly digesting him, tail still moving! The female eventually died 2 days later & was also never to be found. After that, Mr. serpent went to the LFS for free.
