PostSubject: Green Brittle Star (Trade has Been made)   Wed Mar 07, 2012 12:11 pm

My Tank has three Brittle stars in it. at first I only had two stars one red and one green. I puchased a reef cleaner pack online and it came with one mystery star which turned out to be another big red Brittle. Now every time my orriginal red which measures about 18 inchs from tip to tip comes across the little green star they battle and guese who looses. Yep its the green one he is trying to grow back his tenticals now, but against two giant reds he does'nt stand a chance so he needs a new home where he does'nt have any competition. catching one of the reds would be next to imposible since they stay deep into the reef. The little green is always out of the reef for the afore mentioned reason. Please let me know if anyone is interested in some kind of trade. I'm not exspecting much as the star like i said is pretty beat up, but I am sure he will survive if he is put in a tank where he is safe from abuse. Thanks.
Sad

I made a trade with RedSkull for a Blue Polyp Coral frag and it made an awesome addition to my tank. Thanks RedSkull !!! cheers

looks very cool

I've only got frags to offer, but I'd be happy to do so. I've got dark red palys, fuzzy red mushrooms, sea foam green palys maybe an anthilia...any sound interesting?

Burningball decided the star would'nt be a good fit for his tank which is totally cool because I agree with his reasoning. So the star is still up for trade. Like I said I dont exspect to get much for him because he does have a few short tenticals but no open wounds all of his short tenticals a starting to grow back. It will probubly survive and do good in the proper tank. Like I originally said the only reason I want to get rid of it is for its own safety from the two larger red brittles that are in the tank. I would get rid of one of them but they stay baried in the reef and it would be next to imposible to catch one without doing damage to it or tareing down my reef which is out of the question because it would upset the balance of the tank . Thanks everybody.

i would, but i have no where to put them right now, my hex is getting borderline imo and the front tank houses my recovering serpent star (as he couldnt compete with my green monster)...
damnit, now i want them anyways, how big are they?
