View Full Version : Anyone have a harlequin

Hello, this is my first post on this forum.
I have been calling around to all of the local fish stores and none have a harlequin shrimp for my Asterina star issue. I have a 200g mixed reef and its infested with Asterina stars that are eating my zoas. If anyone in edmonton has one that would like to move on to a new home that would be awesome!:biggrin:

Odd I have tons of these things but they don't harm anything in my tank.

From what I read some do some don't. The ones I have do. They sit right on the polyp and stay there until it's gone and when you have 10 or more in each colony it destroys the colony pretty quick. I didn't have any problems with my asterisk stars for a few years then they started going after all of my zoas so I need to cut there population.

Wai's Aquarium in Calgary usually have them in stock, just in case you make a trip down here.
