Sand sifting star lost a leg and a half
Got two of'm in a 75g. The other is just fine. There's a 2 1/2" fine sand bed, 80-90lbs of rock. Been with me for 8 months with no problems. 2 brittle stars, 2 percs, yellow tang, foxface rabbitfish, purple firefish, neon goby, and 2 b/g chromis. Of course a bunch of hermits (electric blue, red legged), snails, cleaner shrimp, & pepermints.
What could be the culprit? Something deep in the sand maybe? Can't imagine any of the tankmates having him for lunch.
