    So I just picked up some live rock from a lady I found on kijiji. Added it to my tank and found this tiny critter on the glass half an hour later... I've got a baby Narrow Lined Puffer, so assuming this guy won't last long once the puffer sees it, but still curious what exactly it is...

    Thanx in advance!

    Asternia star. Asterina. Something like that. They can be a pest. I get rid of them when i see one. They can multiply quickly and the can kill zoo’s by crawling over them.

    Thanx! Was doing my own research after posting and figured that's what they were. So far, I've seen at least 6 on the glass, but my Narrow Lined Puffer is picking them off one by one. So figure that's a bonus live food for the Puffer!
