    plankton and rotifers

    Has anyone had any luck with breeding starfish? I was thinking of trying it because I've had an OK amount of experience with clowns and even a few tangs (mainly zebrasoma) - but starfish seem to be in a whole different category from what I have seen. Still I think it would be interesting to get...

    How does this just happen - VIPER!

    You should love this. Of course I wouldn't sell it for anything less then much money, but the lines are also a lot whiter. The color got kind of masked out by the water column and clowding of the sand. I watched nearly all of these open and then this one somehow got missed. It's the only one...
