    The small blueish starfish about 1 to 1 1/2 inches across occasionally is seen, however it's constantly hides in the crevices of one of my Bali LR.
    Hard to take any pics of it, but has anyone seen one of these and how large can they grow?

    Yea I hope that's the one! Looks pretty much right on other than the size...hopefully it will grow to that size and show up more on the outside of the rocks!

    Should grow do a decent size. Mine like to stay in rock work as well but will come out every so often. Nice thing is when they get bigger you can still see them pretty good even when they are in your rocks ;) and the best thing is they are reef safe ;D
