This little guy was found tonight when I was cleaning the glass. He was making a home on my flipper.... I'm assuming reef safe brittle star of some type... I hope. He's probably been in there a while.

Micro brittle star. Very Reef safe and desired by most hobbyists.

I'm surprised my dragon wrasse hasn't chased him down and eaten him. Or taken the starfish to his lair to make it dance or something.

Almost all established reefs have these little guys..they come out at night w the asterinas and baby snails. Once in a while my wrasse will find one and will whisk it away
