what is wrong with my starfish?
I put a red sea star in my tank about 3 weeks ago, and it has seemed fine, except it moves very little (maybe thats normal). Last night I noticed a small lump in the top of its body (I wasn't even sure if it was excrement), which has gotten bigger since then. I have a 55-gallon tank with a skimmer, refugium and canister. The parameters I can test for are pH 8.2, ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrates 5-10, calcium 500. The first pic is from yesterday morning with no signs of a lump at all, and the second pic is from this morning just after the lights came on. Maybe someone knows what this nasty lizard is all about!?!
