green brittle star missing legs
ok so i recently had to move my green brittle star from my 150reef to my 16gal bowfront tank, cause his legs were looking like someone had been picking at him. a long time ago i used to keep emerald crabs in the tank with him, and one day i caught one of the emerald crabs red handed picking off spines and eating them. so the crabs got the boot. however i noticed the star's legs were continuing to get shorter and shorter. i only had three emeralds, two of which were huge and easy to capture, while the other one was tiny and impossible to catch. so there is still one lonesome emerald crab somewhere in the big tank, which is why i moved over the star to the 16. it hasn't been long enough to notice any improvement in the star. so i was wondering if anyone else out there had a problem with their brittle stars getting eaten by anything, and if so will the legs grow back okay? well thanks for any info!
