brittle star

I noticed yesterday my black brittle star lost a leg, is that normal? should i worry> hes been acting normal, that i can tell. I THOUGHT MAYBE MY BIG hermit crab may of tried to get him. I read bob fenners pages on brittles, and they said sometimes that happens.

How long ya had it and what else is in the tank? The leg will grow back if there's no problem in the tank.

Doesn't sound like anything to get him.

Could be nothing but those sixlines can be pretty aggresive to things that look like worms. One leg sticking out of the rock would be inviting to a sixline.
