Asterina stars are positive hitch hikers, they will split and multiply in good water conditions. After a while you may end up giving some away. lol

Ok sounds good, just making sure no hitchhikers harm my fish. I had a baby crab in one of my rocks too, but it died somehow.. i saw its body when i stirred the sand up.

Lol wolfpack, i got you

Just wondering.. I been looking up info on the asterina stars and i see they multiply easily. So im picturing this... I get up one day, decide to move rocks around..so i disturb them and a mob of 50 stars rush out and start cleaning. Will this happen??

lol, they stay out in the open, you will eventually find them everywhere. Some people choose to start taking some out, I never did. Good CUC and they are hardy, you will never kill those things. I bought a tank that was horribly abused and still had a ton of them. She hadn't done a PWC in a year in a half.

Your LFS will probably give them to you if they have some in their tanks, I know mine will. They don't sell them.
