that good but woke up this morning and did usual torch on the old tank to see which corals have been moved around during the night.
In the photos you can see where my blue tang sleeps (his tail anyway) and just in front of him is a massive bristle star. We have several of these int he tank.
With him being that size is he any threat to the fish at night while sleeping ?
Do they actually hurt fish ?
Should I remove him ?
Sorry about the quality of the pic but in the dark with an iphone is difficult.
Doesnt look that big in th phots but trust me it is large.

Yes, sometimes you can lure them out of the rock by putting food just out of their reach, then net his ass up and send somewhere.
