    Invasive or a friend? Cause there seems to be a little more in the Sand bed.

    Just a Mini Brittle Starfish. Those kinds are good detrivores. They eat leftover fish food, fish poop, and dead stuff.

    I let them live in my tank.

    There are some species that get super big, like the size of your hand. I don't like those. Most likely what you have are the Mini Brittle Starfish.

    Will my Catalina goby be fine eating these?

    You feed them to your goby? That's cool. Yeah I guess it's fine if it chooses to eat the starfish.

    But you should also feed your goby a mix of pellets and/or frozen food like Mysis, Sprirulina Brine Shrimp.

    I don't feed it to them. I'm assuming he eats them because he sifts through the sand.
