Wow none of the sites I found were that detailed thanks! But he seem like he could be a labor intensive little guy so ill will keep reading. I would like a safe star prefferably brittle star to take care of detritus but I have a cleaner and pistol shrimp also perc. clowns and gobies i would not want to turn one or all of them to lunch.

I used to have a bubble tipped brittle star, and he was fine until he got REALLY large. Then he would make himself appear to be a cave for my chromis and then pounce on them. I gave him back to the lfs when he was too big for my tank.

Here's one I have in a Red Sea Max. Here is a picture I took at night. No problems with it.
