Think that invertebrate is a goner? Here’s how to be sure.
If that left arm was pointing up I’d say you have a nice pink cactus . Good tip! Appendages falling out would’ve been a little more obvious huh? So, you’ve only had your star a few days and you’ve already taught it to pose for the camera, play dead, and almost imitate a cactus. Wish my star would do that (: Mine’s trained to bury himself alive, but that’s all and i’ve had him for four years now…how embarrassing (:
That is a pretty star bud, take care!
omg i wished i had seen this last week now i feel terrible . i bought a banded brittle starfish . as like you i did all the right things but when the lights came on the next morning i was sure it was dead . now im not so sure . now feel guilty as hell . but thanks to you have learnt an important lesson thanks
Thanks Mark 🙂
Sometimes Conches bury themselves for weeks, so that might be a false alarm as well?
Thanks for the tip mark ill be sure to use it
Good Tip Mark! It’s funny all your fish are sitting next to you in that conner.
you are lucky that starfish hasn’t met your vortechs yet…mine did, lost 3 arms….it survived, started to recover, but months later, hello vortech! and did him in 🙁
Great tip! Thanks murat!
I’m not sure if you covered this topic in another video if so please let me know, but what type of fish do you have in your tank?
Mark , I’m somewhat of a newbie. can you have a tip on keeping your tanks glass or acrylic clean? what to use inside to clean the algae and keep the tank looking great. also i see some people just let the backs of the insides of their tanks just go and see all kinds of buildup. I want to maintain my tank glass as clean as possible. And be the best husbandry as I can.
that was a nice tip.
Mark, Would you let a small fish that perished in your tank be eaten by the CUC? Or, does this only apply to inverts? Thanks!
My cleanup crew is pretty extensive. In 100 gallons, I have over 100 various snails, and over 100 various hermit crabs. I have two small brittle stars as well. The crabs are a real pain when trying to feed my corals, but I never have the problem of finding animals half dead. In my tank, any sign of weakness means you will be eaten, sometimes while still alive.
i enjoy drinking my coffe and waching the quik tips
I put a choclate chip star in my tank and it disappeared. I looked everywhere for it and can’t find it. Will it crawl out of a tank and someplace else in a room Mark?
