Unlike other commonly known starfish, the Green Brittle Starfish has long and thin arms that enable them to move quickly. The Green Brittle Starfish has five arms that are radiating from a central disk underneath which, the mouth of the starfish is located. It is a great scavenger and mainly feeds on decaying matter and plankton with the help of its long arms. The Green Brittle Starfish can be found commonly in most of the world?s coral reefs. It is basically a brittle, spiny and hard skinned animal. The Green Brittle Starfish is also known as a serpent star due to its sleek morphology. It moves along the sea bed, and if any arm is cut off it can be regenerated and form a new arm. The Green Brittle Starfish generally likes to stay on rocks and therefore live rocks are necessary in an aquarium to give a natural home like shelter to them. It is nocturnal and often hides under the rocks and during the day it can be seen with its appendages sticking out on the rockwork. The Green Brittle Starfish feeds on small organisms during the night, and pushes their stomach out through their mouth, and digest the prey. It does not possess any brain and has a ring of nerve cells that send the information around the whole body. The Green Brittle Starfish varies in color, and features tube feet. These tube feet are located along the arms that sense light and smell. The Green Brittle Starfish is negatively phototrophic, that is to say that it tends to move away from the light and is more active at night. It cannot tolerate copper medication and is very sensitive to little changes in water quality. The Green Brittle Starfish is relatively fast, and grows rapidly with regular feedings, therefore we advise you to introduce it in the tank not less than 50 gallons. The Green Brittle Starfish can be fed with mussel, clam, raw table shrimp, and silversides. ÿ
