We have the shrimps in our sps system and our zoa system

If you get one Dylan keep him for a while till he/she does the job and bring it to us and we will keep it going as we have a high turnover of corals so lack of food is no isue
If you get the stars back yopu can take it again ,and so on

I have millions of these things and I've lost two Zoa colonies almost over night. Could they be the cause?

some of these are coral eater and some arnt as far as i know. i think the blue/grey ones are ok.
i do see them on my zoes sometimes but they seem to be ok and reopen when the stars have moved off.

Ive got one in my system and hes doing a sterling job at steadily removing my stars.
Why do left-over nuts never match left-over bolts?
