I was staring at my rocks,which i dont have much yet, and something caught my eye.I kept watching and a tiny brittle starfish came out of the rock.its about two inches all the way across tip to tip. it has some blue on it.I might sound like a little kid but im new and this is awesome.i will put some pics up when i figure out how.

    Congrats! Finding new stuff is great. Try using a red flash light at night when the lights are off. All kinds of weird stuff comes out to play. :D

    If you really want to see cool stuff get a UV flashlight (but you gotta wear eye protection).

    The asterina (a tiny starfish) that have a blue spot on them will eat your coralline. Keep an eye on your starfish, he might be a pest.
