I have a few baby stars in my tank. They are either a species of brittle or a species of serpent, but too small for me to know the difference. They are all white, but the body shape of the too are very similar. Is there a way to tell the difference in species in one so small.

Need to see a pic to help with id. Could be brittle stars or asterina, depending on the shape.

They might just be mini-stars, and not babies:
