    I think I caught my brittle Star spawning last night. Sorry for the poor phone video. Was getting ready for bed when I noticed a couple of my brittle stars were actually out of their caves. I think this is the first time I have seen more that just an arm since I got them this spring at the swap. They are much larger now for sure.

    The video doesn't show it but it looks like he/ it was releasing a white cloud into the current. Here are some pictures.

    Yup they do that. I took a video a while back after a water change. It's a cool thing to witness.
