Any advice on keeping a brittle star? :sfish::sfish:
They are easy starfish to keep and great cleaners. They will eagerly accept meaty foods if you target feed them. They are particularly sensitive to nitrates, so make sure those stay low.
my brittle star is the only starfish I've been able to keep. I have never target fed him mostly due to his staying in the rockwork and it's at least 2 years old now.
I dont have a brittle, but I have a serpent (same thing, missing the bristles) it never comes out, but in feeding time I see its little legs poking out from the rocks searching for food, so I give it a big piece of meaty food. You just give it to its arm and it'll slowlyyyyy pull it into the rock. Just keep the other fish from stealing it lol
Thanks guys for this information it's a big help
