? from last meeting

When Mike was talking about the 6 legged acro eating stars, did he say all 6 legged stars are acro eaters?

No he said the white ones are ok . You want to watch out for any that have coloration to them . Like greens , purples , blues , etc ... They seem to take the color of the acro they eat .

Just to add to that question... I was in house of fins today and i saw they had harlequin shrimp. I asked about them and they said they dont eat the acro eating asterinas. I believe Mike said they do. Anyone have sucess with the harleqiun shrimp eating those stars?

That was another thing that Mike had "trained" to eat a pest for him. Really a clever idea. I am working on a similar project where I am "training" students to do water changes. I'm hoping to have some available for sale in the next few months...
