    Looks good, my only suggestion is maybe put some rock down for the rics to grow and make a nice carpet.

    The rics are on rock rubble pieces that are pushed into the sand.

    Beautiful tank! Your corals look amazing, and I love your aquascape.

    I found the brittle star legs, I actually have the same ones in my aquarium! (Photograph attached) Do you happen to know anything about that particular star? I know some are harmless and even beneficial while others can be detrimental to corals. I was unable to find any information on that particular species.

    By the way, I believe we met at the meeting (I sat next to you).

    Thanks!

    Yes! You were sitting to my right I believe? As far as I can tell the micro stars I have are all fine. Some have banded legs and some are just white/tan but none of them have harmed anything. In fact I was just realizing last night that I must be pretty lucky because I haven't lost anything yet, not even a hermit or snail!
