The Asterina's in my tank have been model citizens. Unless you saw it doing some damage, IMO there's no reason to remove them.

star rights

it should not be judge on what it is but rather what it does. it should then be given proper representation for defense and only if proven quilty by all reasonable doubts should it be flushed.

I did not read the thread but I've never seen those starfish hurt anything in anyones tank. it was probably just eating some algae on the clams shell.

coralcrazy + :starfish: = :dead1:

I've had those in my tank as far back as I could remmember. The only thing I've seen them eat is star polyps. I throw them out once and a while because they multiply to fast for my liking.

People probably would make fun if you tried to give 1 away, but not a few.
