I was curious...we have a starfish...really unsure of what kind he is. He is blue but not like the bright blue ones I am familiar with seeing. Anyways, He is dying
He is already starting to fall apart. And I am finding long white strings hanging off him and floating around in the tank. However he is still alive. He is still stuck to the side on the glass and is soft to the touch.
When should I take him out of the tank?
I read that starfish can sometimes come back. I've also read that they will contaminate the tank if they die. So I guess I just don't know when I should remove him.
Sorry very new to all of this so I'm unsure of exact terms to use
