learning the hard way
Eeks, I posted a question about my Sea Basket Starfish the other day, and since then I'm reading about everyone elses problems with starfishes. I just added the Sea Basket to the tank a few days ago and he's just wrapped himself around an airhose & refuses to come out. Now after reading all the other posts I realize just how sensitive these creatures are. I had a marble starfish awhile ago who flourished in my tank (until after about one year when he suddenly shrank and died, that is). I didn't realize they needed so much extra care (longer acclimation, etc.). I sure hope my Sea Basket survives my ignorance.
