Mini brittle stars diet

Recommended Posts

So what I once believed to be a stripped thin worm has now developed into a lot of mini brittle stars. They are big enough to see that when they move the body thru the rock one arm retracts while another comes out another hole. I have never seen one come out in the open even at night. Question. Do they eat pods? I know my wrasses have been munching but not sure if the stars are getting the rest of them as they move thru the rock work.

From what I've seen, like their larger counterparts they're just scavengers.  If they can catch something I'm sure they'll eat it but like their larger cousins they're pretty slow so any prey item has got to be in bad shape to be caught and eaten.
