    I ordered a brittlestar, it was buy one get one free. I was expecting some tiny little creatures, like you get as a hitchhiker but the 2 I got are huge!! Are they safe to keep in my tank? As far as I know they are scavengers but these guys are monsters. Should I take them out???

    As long as they aren't the green ones, they should be fine.
