Need help with identification...

Hi, can anyone help with identification of these little guys? About the size of a dime and a nickle and alive because they move.

I have a 55 gal. with about 40 lbs of live rock.

Thanx... Dory

Brittle Star. Nice freebie to have for keeping things clean. Where there's one (or two!), there are always more!

pretty sweet that they are out and about like that. I've got a larger red one and a larger black and white striped one that only come out a bit when it's feeding time. I've seen some little mini ones from time to time, but they are never out like that. Just their arms waving from inside a hole.

Thanx for the ID

Ha, they are cute, now that I know and did some searching, wish I had some other colored ones too

Thank you for replying.

I agree with Kurt. Great looking brittle stars.

Brittle star for sure. I have at least 100. Some white, some tan, some black and white. I rarely see them like yours though. Good pic. They just clean. Tidy up.
