Hi
I thought my harlequin shrimp was dead, Its been months since ive seen him and I was no longer feeding him because when I would put in a starfish in he would not come out.
SO anyway saw him tonight. I need to start feeding him again I did have a 40 gallon breeder setup with chocolate stars for him but I turned that into a QT tank.
I was going to go out to the pet store tomorrow and get some more but I don't want to wait another month with them in QT before I feed him.
Is there a way or does anyone do a dip or ? For the stars before I feed him one ?
thanks

I don't bother. Velvet/ich doesn't attach to stars or get stuck in them like snail shells.

If its something you're really worried about, you can house them separate and just cut legs off.
