Yep him again. I know you guys told me about him before but I have a question. Do they ever "bloat" up? or did he just eat a big meal? I dont seem to be missing anything unless its my new Green Clown Blenny since I havnt seen him since I put him in two days ago, I hope not. I know some of you told me to get rid of him before but he never really seemed to cause any problems, if I take him back any suggestions for a replacement?

he definitely seems to be a "fish-eating" variety of brittle stars. Have also been known to eat shrimps as well. I would get rid of him

If you are wanting another brittler star, I would go for Ophiolepis superba (Banded brittle star)

I agree, he does seem to be a real problem. I'd really get something new. The above suggestion is a great idea.

He went back today. I have to wait and talk to my manager tomorrow to see if I can get a regular brittle since thats what I paid for that one
