Is it your first nem? And what types of coral do you have?

It amazes me that after a few months I still find new hitchhikers in my tank! I have a star fish the size of a quarter cruising across my glass after the lights are out

My only advice is watch the nem. Mine would move around the rocks for the first few weeks and sometimes end up behind the rocks or even under them. I would flip the rock and he would move. He never bothered any of my coral, he would get close but generally not walk on them. After the first few weeks he found a spot he liked and anchored himself in a rock, I moved the rock a few times and i even moved that rock to my new tank and he is still attached.

Hope this helps

I was going to get a rainsford but I am maxed on fish my my 40gallon breeder. Also I need help with cyano and they only eat green stringy algae I hear. They look awesome though.
