    I found two of this in my tank last night. Any idea what they are? They seem to move about very slowly.
    TIA

    looks to me like an asternia starfish some people find them a pest but I have them in mine just mulling through it.. no harm... if you find them to be a pain just remove them with tweezers

    I had a feeling they were some kind of starfish, but wasn't sure.
    Thanks
