    I have had this tank for about 5 months now and this is the first hitchhiker i have found. I wonder what makes them decide to come out and visit.? He is a pretty thing. The hubby was impressed with the surprise too.

    How big you think he might get?

    They won't get more than quarter to half dollar size, they're called micro brittle stars for a reason.
