Just thought I would share some pic's of my Harliquin. Picked him up after I watched an Astina Starfish kill my Red Hornet(flame). Anyway although he has been eating all quite well he hasn't decided to come out with the lights on until today.

Chocolate chip stars are cheep, and you can cut an arm of one and feed it to the shrimp each week or so. At that rate it is about $5-10 a month to feed the critter. If you have enough stars in enough different tanks you can rotate through cuttings and keep your shrimp fed and still keep the food supply around. The star will grow back a new arm in a month or two.

 

It is a gross practice that I can't see myself doing, but some people like keeping the shrimp enough that they will sacrifice a star a month to keep the shrimp happy and fed.

 

On the other hand, most of us eat meat. Some people must keep cows, chickens, and pigs to keep us happy and fed...

You're getting some great pics of him. Mine likes to hang out on my hand when I'm working in the tank.Found 2 baby brittle stars in the tank today and rescued them before the shrimp found them. Seriously thinking about setting up a tank just for the harliquin after he is done cleaning my tank up. Are you getting rid of yours after he eats all your stars?
