Not to worry about the reef at all with them. The danger is with the small fish. Besides, they get HUGE!

the green brittles are known fish eaters, and yes, they get pretty big. they don't eat corals however.

When I bought my tank, it had a large green brittle star Aka serpent star. It would fill the bottom of a 5 gallon bucket. I didn't give it a chance to prove or disprove any of the rumors about them eating your fish. I put it in my sump until I could get to my LFS. I donated it to them.
